Dubai will start vaccinating people with the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, the state media office said on Tuesday as the United Arab Emirates battles its biggest outbreak since the pandemic begun.
The first shipment has arrived from India, the state media office said in a tweet. It did not provide details on how many doses were received or when inoculations would start.
India’s Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar tweeted: “Made in India vaccines reach Dubai. A special friend, a special relationship.”
