The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) said on Tuesday that 17 private healthcare service providers will now provide vaccination services to the community, in addition to all DHA vaccination centres.
For appointments at private health sector facilities, customers must directly contact the facility of their choice to book the vaccine.

However, for appointments at any DHA vaccine facility, customers should download the DHA app. Those above 60 years can call 800 342 to book their appointments at DHS centres.

The two vaccines presently available in Dubai are: Pfizer BioNTech and Sinopharm. While DHA centres offer both of them at the moment, the private healthcare facilities are only offering the Sinopharm vaccine at the moment.

Authorities added that all those who are scheduled to receive the second dose of their Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine will continue to receive it either in Al Garhoud Medical Fitness Centre or Al Twar Dialysis Centre.
