Authorities in Abu Dhabi are reminding residents that the deadline is approaching to get their Covid-19 booster shot.
Last month it was announced that anyone who had received two shots of the Sinopharm vaccine must now receive a third booster shot to top up their immunity.
For those who received their second dose of Sinopharm vaccine six or more months ago, remember to get a booster dose by 20 September to maintain eligibility for green status on Alhosn app. pic.twitter.com/iDrpjYodLa

After the third dose, a PCR test must be taken at least every 30 days to maintain green status on Al Hosn.
Residents who have taken the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, or any of the other approved vaccines, do not require a third dose at this stage.
Booster shots can be taken without prior appointment at any Seha vaccination centre.
Lately, UAE daily case figures have been consistently below 1,000, with recoveries outweighing new infections. The rate of fully vaccinated residents has now passed 80 per cent.Internet Explorer Channel Network
