UAE: Walk-in COVID vaccine in Dubai? How to book a drive-through COVID vaccine jab

Dubai: The UAE has administered over 11.4 million COVID-19 vaccine doses so far among residents and citizens. While there was a phase with priority to the elderly and people with chronic conditions, now anyone who is a resident or a citizen older than 16 can get vaccinated in the UAE.

The UAE has approved three vaccines: Sinopharm, Pfizer/BioNtech and Sputnik V. All of these are available for free at respective vaccination centres across the country. Booking is essential for almost all of these centres unless you fall under a specific category.
