This summer everyone should be vaccinated before travelling abroad
Dr Farida Al Hosani, official spokeswoman for the health sector, said members of the public should receive both vaccine doses before leaving the country.
She urged all UAE citizens and residents to be immunised “for their own safety” to aid the country’s fight against Covid-19.
Dr Al Hosani said anyone planning to travel abroad should “consider the risks” and “carefully select their destination”.
“They must take the vaccine,” she told
“But it is not just travellers, everyone must get the vaccine, regardless of whether they are travelling or not. It is for their own safety.”
