H.H. Sheikh Abdullah receives COVID-19 trial vaccine


His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, is the latest official to receive the COVID-19 trail vaccine.

Taking to Twitter, he said getting vaccinated is the way to return to normal life.

The UAE has already received approval to administer the COVID-19 vaccine that is being trialled for emergency cases.

The first recipients will be frontline workers who come into regular contact with patients. 

A number of top officials have also received the vaccine.

It follows the success of Phase I and Phase II conducted by Sinopharm in China, which resulted in 100 per cent of the volunteers generating antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes Covid-19) after two doses in 28 days.
