COVID-19 vaccine UAE: Etisalat rolls out vaccination drive

UAE plans to vaccinate more than 50% of the country's population by the end of March


Etisalat has rolled out a vaccination drive for eligible employees free of cost across the UAE in coordination with the Ministry of Health and Prevention.

The inoculation drive began on Wednesday at Etisalat’s Abu Dhabi headquarters Building A, where a station was set up for employees to get the vaccine.

The initiative is in line with UAE's plan to vaccinate more than 50 per cent of the country's population by the end of March.

Etisalat is making the Sinopharm vaccine accessible to its employees at selected buildings. While vaccination is optional, Etisalat is encouraging its employees to get the jab to protect themselves and their families. So far, more than 2,500 employees have signed up for the first dose of the vaccine.
