DUBAI – People taking part in the clinical trial for a Covid-19 vaccine in the UAE do not need to take additional coronavirus tests, according to the Ministry of Health and Prevention.
A Phase 3 clinical trial of a coronavirus vaccine is currently underway in Abu Dhabi, with officials saying thousands have registered to volunteer for vaccine trials.
“The Ministry of Health and Prevention, in co-ordination with the Department of Health Abu Dhabi, has exempted volunteers of the Phase III Covid-19 vaccine trials from performing any other Covid-19 tests outside the trial’s framework,” the ministry said in a statement.
Volunteers are required to download the Al Hosn app on their smartphones for identification and exemption from further Covid-19 testing.
On Wednesday (August 5), authorities announced that the Phase 3 trial has been expanded nationwide to include Sharjah’s Al Qarain Health Centre.
If the trial in the UAE is successful, the vaccine will be approved for public use and will started to be manufactured for mass scale. ICA/Expat Media
