Islam News – Dubai residents can now receive their COVID-19 vaccine jabs from the comfort for their homes.
Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has allowed Vital Zone Home Healthcare Centre, a Dubai-based home nursing company, to launch the initiative as part of its strategy to provide more options to residents to get themselves inoculated against the COVID-19 pandemic. Last week, DHA also launched a WhatsApp service to book appointments for vaccination. Currently, only Dubai visa holders are eligible to get the home vaccine service.
“We offer 24×7 service all over Dubai, including Hatta. Anyone can call us and we will be at their home with our qualified staff in the shortest possible time,” Hassan Latif, managing director of Vital Zone Home Healthcare Centre, told Gulf News.
We at Vital Zone come a step ahead in giving the community this facility of home vaccination on a single call. We are truly trusted as our authorisation with Dubai Healthcare authorities allow us to get you vaccinated at your home within Dubai in the shortest possible time
– Hassan Latif, managing director of Vital Zone Home Healthcare Centre, Dubai
Speaking to Gulf News, Ahmed Adbellah, who, along with his wife, got vaccine jabs at his home in Arabian Ranches, said that he was very pleased with this new service. “I was waiting for this kind of a service in Dubai as the emirate always comes up with innovative ideas. I am not the kind of person to go out with my wife and wait in queues during the pandemic. I believe this is a wonderful service offered in Dubai. The whole process of booking the appointment to get the vaccine jab was very smooth and comfortable,” said Abdellah who works as a pharmacist in Dubai.
Doctor on call
“We also offer 15-day emergency service to our clients after they take the vaccine. They can talk to our ‘doctor on call’ in case they have any health issues after taking the vaccine,”
