Vaccine priority for some categories of residents.
Dubai has received a fresh shipment of the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine against Covid-19.
The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) said the vaccines have been distributed to all centres where the jab is offered for free.
The authority had started vaccinating residents against the coronavirus with the Pfizer vaccine on December 23. However, a month later, the authority had rescheduled the first dose of the vaccine amid a global shortage.
At this stage, the vaccine is prioritised for the elderly, those with chronic diseases and those on the frontlines.
