The United Arab Emirates released a list on Friday of all the locations where residents and nationals can receive the Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine.
Residents across the UAE will now be able to volunteer to be vaccinated, after Abu Dhabi’s voluntary vaccination campaign was extended to include Dubai and the UAE’s five other emirates this week.
The vaccine, which was developed by China’s state-owned Sinopharm, was approved after it showed 86 percent efficacy in trials, according to regulators.
“The Sinopharm vaccine had underwent clinical trials on a large scale in the UAE in summer campaign participated by 31,000 people,” according to Weqaya, a government website launched earlier this year to raise public health awareness about coronavirus and the guidelines put in place to slow its spread.
In July, the Gulf country started Phase III clinical trials of the vaccine, developed by Beijing Institute of Biological Product, a unit of Sinopharm’s China National Biotec Group (CNBG), according to Reuters.
In September, it authorized emergency use of the vaccine for front line workers, the first such international clearance for a vaccine developed in China.
Following the vaccine’s approval for general use, residents can now visit the below clinics and health centers to get vaccinated.
