Covid-19 vaccine in UAE: Exemption for pregnant women, six other categories


To receive an official exemption, the applicant needs to visit an authorised medical centre for medical evaluation.

Pregnant women and recipients of Covid-19 vaccine outside the UAE are among the categories that have been exempted from vaccination, authorities in Abu Dhabi announced.

The exemptions also apply to active Covid-19 patients, participants in vaccine clinical trials, and former Covid-19 patients following medical evaluation, as well as those who have previously had severe allergies to vaccines or components of vaccines, and those who have diseases that may be incompatible with the vaccine.
