A vaccine meant to prevent one from contracting coronavirus has been given to the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
He made the statement on Tuesday.
He disclosed that he was injected with COVID-19 trial vaccine produced by the UAE medical teams.
@HHShkMohd, who shared this on Twitter with a photo of a health worker injecting him, said the teams worked relentlessly to make the vaccine available.
He, however, did not state whether or not the vaccine has been endorsed by the World Health Organisation. He also did not reveal his COVID-19 status.
The PM wrote, “While receiving the COVID-19 vaccine today. We wish everyone safety and great health, and we are proud of our teams who have worked relentlessly to make the vaccine available in the UAE. The future will always be better in the UAE.”
