The Department of Health - Abu Dhabi (DoH) will launch drive-through services for people looking to take the jab soon.

A press note released by state news agency WAM said the move is being undertaken as part of the UAE's nationwide campaign to vaccinate at least half of the eligible population against Covid-19 by the end of March.

DoH will provide a number of centres, including drive through services, with Covid-19 vaccines outside of Abu Dhabi.

These will be operated by Abu Dhabi Healthcare Services (SEHA) and will increase the number of locations nationally where Covid-19 vaccines are available to 218.

Undertaken in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP), the vaccination drive will support ongoing efforts to strengthen immunity within the community and maintain health and safety.
