Following the official registration of Beijing Institute of Biological Product's inactivated COVID-19 vaccine, SEHA establishes three centers to exclusively administer the vaccine to the UAE public

Abu Dhabi, January 13, 2021:  Abu Dhabi Health Services Company, (SEHA), the UAE's largest healthcare network, has announced the opening of two COVID-19 Vaccination Centers in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and one in Dubai, for members of the community who wish to receive the Beijing Institute of Biological Product's inactivated vaccine.

The COVID-19 Vaccination Centers, located in Abu Dhabi Cruise Terminal in Abu Dhabi City and Al Ain Convention Center in Al Ain City, have the collective capacity to administer vaccine shots to 6,000 people daily, and were established in a record time of four days. The centers were established following the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention's (MOHAP) announcement of the registration of the vaccine, making the country one of the first in the world to administer a COVID-19 vaccine to the community. In Dubai, the COVID-19 Vaccination Center is located at Dubai Parks & Resorts Field Hospital and has the capacity to accommodate 3,000 people daily.

The Sinopharm CNBG COVID-19 vaccine will also be administered within select SEHA facilities, including 35 Ambulatory Health Services (AHS) facilities in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, 6 hospitals in the Al Dhafrah region, Al Ain and Al Dhafrah, SEHA's National Screening Center in Mina Rashid and Khawaneej in Dubai city, and existent screening centers in industrial areas, with an overall capacity of 150,000.

The registration of the Sinopharm CNBG COVID-19 vaccine follows the success of the Phase 3 Clinical Trials, which began in Abu Dhabi and was overseen by MOHAP and the DoH, managed by G42 Healthcare, and administered by SEHA. 31,000 volunteers took part in the clinical trials, the analysis of which proved the inactivated vaccine's 86% efficacy against the COVID-19 virus and was followed by the administration of the vaccine to emergency personnel and frontline healthcare workers.

The new centers are each divided into two zones – one for each dose, with every zone including 24 vaccination stations. 

Visitors to the COVID-19 Vaccination Centers and other SEHA facilities administering the vaccine will first register and then undergo a vital checkup, including blood pressure, height, weight, and temperature. Women will also be required to conduct a pregnancy test. Following the examination, visitors will undergo an assessment to confirm their eligibility and sign a consent form, after which, they will be given the first dose. After receiving the first dose, they will receive their appointment for the second dose, administered three to four weeks after the first dose. 

UAE nationals and residents wishing to receive the vaccine can visit any of the centers in Abu Dhabi every day of the week, from 8:00am to 8:00pm. The COVID-19 Vaccination Center in Dubai is open daily from 8:00am to 4:00pm as walk-in or by appointment through the SEHA Ap
