Dubai has expanded COVID-19 vaccination campaign to include additional categories of the population. Dubai resident visa holders aged 40 and above can now register to receive vaccination, Dubai Health Authority (DHA) announced on Tuesday.
The Authority also announced that elderly individuals aged 60 and above with a valid resident visa issued in any emirate can register for the vaccine, provided they can prove they are residing in Dubai.
The announcement is aligned with Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid’s instructions to adopt comprehensive measures to protect the community from COVID-19 and ensure the highest levels of health and safety.
The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine can now be administered to all individuals 16 years and above, instead of 18 years and the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine can now be administered to anyone aged 18 and above, instead of those between 18-65 years.
