The first item is for members. Those who have paid an entry fee of £25,000 can purchase a three-week UAE vaccination travel package for the Knightsbridge Federation. By then, they will be able to live in the beautiful villas booked by the club and enjoy various recreational activities while waiting for the second shot while being vaccinated.

The club announced on January 22 that they will start selling vaccine services to non-members at a price of £10,000 per person, as long as they are 65 years of age or older, or they can be proved There is an underlying health condition. However, they must pay for their own air tickets and three weeks of accommodation in the UAE.
The club’s founder, Stuart McNeill, told The New York Times that since the club publicly provided vaccine travel services, they have received more than 2,000 membership applications, as well as thousands of phone calls and email inquiries.

“They were vaccinated in the UAE with the Chinese National Medicine vaccine”
According to a report by the “Daily Telegraph” on January 12, about 40% of the members of the Knightsbridge Federation club are British, many of whom hold multiple passports and have multiple properties worldwide. McNeill introduced that the vaccination project is already underway, and their British and foreign members are flying to participate in this vaccination “holiday”, and many people travel on private jets.
McNeill also stated that they have been vaccinating members in the UAE in the past few weeks. Because they use Pfizer and Sinopharm vaccines, after receiving the first injection, members need to take the second injection 21 days apart.
However, the “Guardian” pointed out that when the newspaper checked with Pfizer, Pfizer stated that it only provides vaccines to the UAE government and will not sell vaccines to any private company in the UAE or other countries. Pfizer also stated that it has submitted the club’s claims to its global security team for investigation.
In this regard, the “Knightsbridge Federation” club later clarified that Pfizer vaccines will only be provided to their UAE members. For those non-UAE members, they provide the COVID-19 vaccine produced by China National Pharmaceutical Group.
As early as December last year, the UAE had reviewed and approved the registration and marketing of Sinopharm vaccines. At the beginning of January this year, the UAE also announced that it would produce national medicine vaccines locally to further meet the domestic vaccination demand and prepare for the global vaccine market.
According to the club’s explanation, they have reached a cooperative relationship with the UAE government to allow them to obtain the national medicine vaccine. Through this project, the UAE will also be able to attract tourists, thereby “bringing tourism into the region.” In addition, the club also stated that their membership vaccine program and 10,000 pounds of non-member vaccine program have been fully booked in the past few weeks and will not accept further applications.
It is worth mentioning that the UAE is not the first country that hopes to use vaccines to boost domestic tourism. The Russian tourism department is also planning to launch COVID-19 vaccination trips to attract foreign tourists.
Since vaccines in many countries are still in short supply, transnational vaccination has become an urgent need for those who cannot be vaccinated temporarily in their own countries. As early as last December, after the UK began to vaccinate the people on a large scale for COVID-19, some wealthy Indians asked travel agencies to go to the UK for vaccination.
In addition to transnational countries, cross-state vaccinations have also emerged in the United States. According to the “Guardian” report on January 31, due to the different vaccination regulations of the states in the United States and the uneven distribution of vaccines, many people have begun to vaccinate across states.
