Re: Vaccine rollout in the UAE

We had the choice of the Sinopharm or the Sputnik. The company sorted it out and a firm from AD pitched up and jabbed 5000 bodies in 2 days and repeated a month later . Very impressed indeed .

Re: Dubai slams rumours about COVID-19 situation in emirate

I think they'll try and avoid that if they can as the vaccine push is on full throttle but there's still a lot of smoke and mirrors as always in the city .
