Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Member of the Executive Council and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Office, was today administered the COVID-19 vaccine. This was during his visit to Khalifa Hospital to review the first day of the vaccine being administered to frontline workers in all vital sectors. "In support of the programme and to encourage workers in vital sectors to take part, His Highness received the COVID-19 vaccine, affirming the leadership's commitment to support all frontline workers," a statement from the Abu Dhabi Government Media Office said.
