COVID-19 Vaccine: The elderly given priority at UAE-wide vaccination centres

The move is in light of the recent spike in infections across the country.

The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) is dedicating all COVID-19 vaccination centres for the country’s senior citizens and those with chronic diseases.

The temporary move is in the light of the spike in infections over the past weeks, according to MoHAP.

The MoHAP made the announcement tonight in line with its vaccine rollout plan to ensure acquired community immunity and contain the disease.

The Ministry also said that over the coming four to six weeks, the vaccine rollout will be increasingly focused on inoculating as many as possible from the elderly and people with chronic diseases who are the most vulnerable to COVID-19.

During this period, other segments of society may get vaccinated after prior appointment with inoculation centres available across the nation.

The Ministry called upon the families of the elderly people and those with chronic diseases to ensure their vaccination in order to protect their health.
