UAE Ministry of Health dismisses rumours about Covid-19 vaccine, warns of legal action

 

DUBAI – The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP) has dismissed rumours on social media about Covid-19 vaccine, and warned of legal action for rumour mongers.

The warning from the ministry came amid rumours aimed at discouraging people from getting the coronavirus vaccine.

The ministry said that anyone spreading fake information will be held legally accountable.

MOHAP reiterated the importance of getting facts from official sources and called on the public to verify information before sharing it.

The UAE’s vaccination campaign is currently underway, with health authorities across the country distributing free Covid-19 vaccines at health centres.

Currently, the Pfizer-BioNTech and Sinopharm vaccines are the only two vaccines available in the country. Authorities have said they plan to vaccinate at least 70 percent of the population by 2021. ICA/Expat Media
