UAE: All eligible residents receive one dose in world-first milestone

The UAE on Friday registered a landmark achievement in its fight against the Covid-19 pandemic — 100 per cent of its eligible population has received at least one dose of the Covid vaccine. The UAE is second behind the British overseas territory of Gibraltar to achieve this remarkable feat.

The UAE is among the top 3 countries in the vaccine administration rate, offering at least a dose to the public and conducting PCR tests per 1,000 people. As the Covid-19 vaccine was rolled out globally, the UAE was among the first nations in the world to inoculate its residents and citizens free of cost with the Chinese Sinopharm vaccine.
