One hundred per cent of eligible people received one dosage of the vaccine by November of last year. UAE accomplishes the milestone less than a year after the government initiated its widespread immunisation campaign. In December 2020, the Ministry of Health and Prevention of the UAE authorised the broad distribution of the Sinopharm vaccine. Within days, the FDA authorised the Covid-19 vaccine from Pfizer-BioNTech for widespread use.
