Dubai Health Authority (DHA) held a series of webinars across various Dubai Government entities to raise awareness on the importance of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The DHA’s Health Promotion & Education Section kicked off the initiative, following the launch of the authority’s free Pfizer-BioNTech vaccination campaign.
The webinars have benefited 910 government employees working at Dubai Customs and Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), revealed Dr Hend Al Awadhi, head of the Health Promotion & Education Section at DHA.. She added that DHA will also be holding two more webinars with Dubai Media Corporation (DMC) and Dubai Municipality (DM) by the end of this month.
She added that each webinar is divided into three sections. The first focuses on what one needs to know before getting vaccinated. The second section of the webinar focuses on what to expect when taking the vaccine.
She added that the final part of the webinar focuses on what to expect after taking the vaccine, such as the common side-effects one can experience when taking the vaccine. It also tells people about what to do should one experience any side-effect, apart from answering the frequently-asked questions.
Those who are within the targeted categories can book an appointment to get vaccinated through the DHA app or by calling 800342.
