The UAE’s vaccination campaign has been one of the world’s most efficient, with over 14.4 million doses administered and the majority of the population already inoculated against the virus.

Data from Reuters indicates that an average of 77,312 doses are administered in the UAE per day. If the country continues to vaccinate at this rate, it would take a further 26 days to administer enough shots to another 10 percent of the population.
