In support of the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) COVAX initiative and its efforts to equitably distribute 2 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines in 2021, the Dubai Vaccines Logistics Alliance combines the expertise and global reach of Emirates airline with DP World’s worldwide network of ports and logistics operations, along with the infrastructure of Dubai Airports and International Humanitarian City to distribute vaccines worldwide.

Abu Dhabi: The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention has announced dedicating vaccination centers only for elderly people and those with chronic disease in the light of the spike in infections over the past weeks.

The ministry made the announcement in line with its plan to provide the COVID-19 vaccine and ensure acquired community immunity in order to contain the disease.

The ministry added that over the 4-6 weeks the vaccine rollout will be focused on elderly people and those with chronic diseases who are the most vulnerable to COVID-19.

Last week, DP World and UNICEF had also announced a wide-ranging partnership to support the global distribution of COVID-19 vaccines and related immunisation supplies in low- and lower-middle-income countries. The new partnership — with a multi-million-dollar value — is the largest to date to support UNICEF’s lead role in procuring and supplying 2 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines and auxiliary vaccination supplies on behalf of the COVAX Facility.
