The results of clinical trials in our country are moving on the right path, with all tests being successful so far said the NCEMA UAE in today's announcement. 


In less than six weeks since the study began, 31,000 volunteers representing 125 nationalities have participated in the clinical trials. The side effects reported are mild and were expected like with all other vaccines, no extreme side effects have been encountered.


The results are showing a growth in antibody production in the body once given the vaccine. The vaccine has been tested on 1,000 volunteers suffering from chronic diseases, and no complications occurred.


This emergency approval of the vaccine was given upon meeting a set criteria for this specific purpose, and working closely with the vaccine's developers.


The evaluation was performed under a license for emergency and limited use, considering target groups, product characteristics, clinical studies data, and all relevant available scientific evidence.


The health authorities have followed all procedures to control the quality, safety and efficacy of the vaccine in coordination with the vaccine’s creators.


We congratulate the UAE on this significant win in completing stage 3 of the COVID vaccine testing.
