In line with the national plan for vaccination of Covid-19, the Ministry of Health and Community Protection approved the emergency use of the Covid-19 vaccine, “Pfizer Bionic”, for the age group from 12 to 15 years, based on the results of clinical studies, the strict evaluation followed for the emergency use permit, and the local evaluation in compliance with the approved regulations.
This accreditation comes as an important step for national efforts to combat the Covid-19 virus to prevent this age group, affirming the UAE’s proactive approach and concern for the health and safety of every member of society.
The Ministry of Health and Community Protection, the Department of Health Abu Dhabi, the Abu Dhabi Center for Public Health and the Dubai Health Authority have launched a free vaccination campaign nationwide for all citizens and residents, as part of the continuous efforts to limit the spread of the Covid-19 virus. More than 11 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were provided to the population across the country, contributing to the stated goal of vaccinating half of the eligible population by the end of March 2021.
