The authorities recommend that people in the UAE get a booster shot if they had their second dose of Sinopharm or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine more than six months ago.

People in groups considered at high risk were advised to get the booster after three months.

The shot can be either the Sinopharm or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, both of which are administered at Ministry of Health and Prevention centres in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and Dubai Health Authority centres.

The vaccines, which are free, are also available at several private hospitals across the Emirates.

People considered at high risk, including those aged over 60, the disabled and those with chronic diseases, can go to a listed health centre without an appointment. All others must book a slot beforehand.

Who is eligible for a booster shot?

Children over 12 can take the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. The Sinopharm vaccine has been approved for children between the ages of 3 and 17 after a successful trial involving 900 youngsters in Abu Dhabi.
