In the UAE, the vaccination process has been prioritized for the elderly and people with chronic illnesses for the next six weeks. This new, temporary plan was announced by The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) to protect the people with chronic illnesses. Since the virus can harm the vulnerable and elderly the most, it is best to vaccinate them first.
