About the vaccine

“Vectors” are vehicles, which can induce a genetic material from another virus into a cell. The gene from adenovirus, which causes the infection, is removed while a gene with the code of a protein from another virus spike is inserted. This inserted element is safe for the body but still helps the immune system to react and produce antibodies, which protect us from the infection.


Official statement

“The UAE is committed to the global fight against COVID-19 and we are pleased to play our part in enabling promising solutions and progress.” - UAE Minister for Health, HE AbdulRahman bin Mohammed Al Owais
