The UAE Government has approved the administration of three COVID-19 vaccines in the country.

The Sinopharm CNBG COVID-19 vaccine, the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and the AstraZeneca vaccine are available at various medical centers across the emirates.

Visitors to the COVID-19 vaccination centres are required to register for an appointment through the SEHA or DHA app, or by calling 800 342.

On the day of their appointment they undergo a vital checkup, which includes blood pressure, height, weight, and temperature checks. 

This is followed by an assessment to confirm their eligibility where they are asked to sign a consent form.

The first dose is administered once all the checks are completed. The second dose is given three to four weeks after the first jab.

Individuals who've tested positive for COVID-19 can check with their healthcare provider before taking the vaccine.

Speaking to ARN News, a senior UAE official said some people do not have to wait for 3 months as commonly thought.
