The UAE approved China's Sinopharm vaccine for use after Phase-3 trials found it was effective against coronavirus.
The Ministry of Health on Wednesday said it had approved a request from the Chinese drug maker "in a major step towards combating the global pandemic".
The Sinopharm vaccine was widely trialled in the UAE in the summer in a campaign involving 31,000 people.
Residents can get the vaccine in government clinics and health centres in Abu Dhabi from 8am to 8pm.
Appointments can be booked through a network of Abu Dhabi health centres and clinics run by Seha.
Bookings can be made by calling 80050. A message which plays before the main menu options offers residents the option to arrange an appointment.
Private clinics, including all VPS Healthcare hospitals, can also be visited for vaccination against Covid-19.
