The United Arab Emirates has vaccinated all those who must be vaccinated against COVID-19 in the country, state news agency WAM reported on Thursday.

The UAE "announces that 100% of the targeted categories have been vaccinated," it said.

“The campaign aimed to vaccinate and immunize front-liners, volunteers, community members of the age groups specified according to the type of vaccine, the elderly and individuals with chronic diseases whose health condition allows them to take the vaccine,” it said.

“The UAE, through the Ministry of Health and Prevention, worked to provide the COVID-19 vaccine to all society members to reach the acquired immunity resulting from ‘vaccination and immunization for individuals,’ which in turn reduces the number of cases and control the spread of the virus,” WAM added.
