Rate and ease of vaccination in UAE a model for other countries
Islam News – Trust in country’s health care apparatus key to success of any mass inoculation programme, commented the English language daily ‘Gulf New’, as WAM agency reported.
The UAE’s vaccination programme is on track, covering a significant size of the population at a rate of 47,000 vaccines per day, proportionately faster than many other countries where mass inoculation has begun. So far, 826,000 people or eight per cent of the UAE population has been vaccinated and many more are getting the shots against Coronavirus every day. The credit goes to the country’s health regulators who have prepared a solid plan to distribute and administer the vaccines all over the country.
The most important element is the ease of registration and receiving the vaccine for both citizens and residents. By roping in public health care network and private sector capacity, the entire process has been simplified for all sections of the society. The vaccine, free of cost for all, is being offered in two-shot dosage through government health centres and private hospitals in every emirate. The only exceptions are those below 18 years of age, people who are haemodynamically unstable with blood pressure and cardiac complications, pregnant women and those with a history of severe allergic reactions.
