Sinopharm still being used alongside Pfizer-BioNTech in UAE

First and second shots, along with a booster dose, of the Chinese-made vaccine remain available in the 60-plus hospitals, clinics and tents that it oversees.

The Pfizer coronavirus vaccines were introduced extensively in Abu Dhabi and across the UAE in recent weeks.

Seha said the suggestion that Sinopharm would be phased out in any way, which was spread on WhatsApp groups, was not accurate.

“Members of the community can receive dose one and dose two, or the booster shot, of the Sinopharm CNBG vaccine, or dose 1 and dose 2 of Pfizer-BioNTech,” it said.
