The Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, on Tuesday, disclosed that he had been injected with COVID-19 trial vaccine produced by the UAE medical teams.

He shared this through his verified Twitter handle with a photo of a health worker injecting him and said the teams worked relentlessly to make the vaccine available.

The Prime Minister wrote,

“While receiving the COVID-19 vaccine today. We wish everyone safety and great health, and we are proud of our teams who have worked relentlessly to make the vaccine available in the UAE. The future will always be better in the UAE.”

The need for a vaccine has become more urgent globally especially in the wake of a new wave of the pandemic.


Nigeria’s President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), last week also said the country’s economy cannot afford another round of lockdown.

“There are currently more than 100 COVID-19 vaccine candidates under development, with a number of these in the human trial phase.

“WHO is working in collaboration with scientists, business, and global health organizations through the ACT Accelerator to speed up the pandemic response.

“When a safe and effective vaccine is found, COVAX (led by WHO, GAVI and CEPI) will facilitate the equitable access and distribution of these vaccines to protect people in all countries. People most at risk will be prioritised,” WHO wrote on its website.
