A spokesperson for the UAE Health Department said that since October and January last year, the UAE has received at least 826,301 vaccine doses, an average of 47,000 doses per day. The UAE’s goal is to reach 50% of the country’s population by the end of March. The main purpose of the UAE’s domestic production of vaccines is to further meet domestic demand and to prepare for the needs of the global vaccine market. Currently, vulnerable groups have priority in vaccinations, but according to the spokesperson, the UAE also hopes to vaccinate young people as soon as possible.

 

In July 2020, this Gulf country with a population of 10 million has cooperated with China National Pharmaceutical Group to start a phase III clinical trial of the COVID-19 vaccine. More than 31,000 volunteers from 125 countries and regions living in the UAE have participated in this trial. Up to now, China National Pharmaceutical Group has provided 3 million inactivated COVID-19 vaccines to the UAE.
