There are currently 17,927 active COVID-19 cases in the UAE, and the death toll has gone up to 1,345, the UAE’s Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority NCEMA reported.

Over 6.2 million vaccine doses have already been administered and the country hopes to vaccinate its entire population by the end of the year. In an effort to achieve this target, the UAE has been actively bolstering its vaccination drive.

The country prioritized the high-risk group of people first, and started their inoculation program early, compared to other nations. They have also led one of the world’s most efficient vaccination drives.

Dubai recently launched an initiative called ‘Wellness on Wheels’, a collaboration between Dubai Health Authority and the Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences, featuring mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinics. The initiative is one of the country’s recent efforts to bolster its inoculation campaign, and has been successful with over 7,000 administered vaccine shots administered within one month.
