Storyline


The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has launched the largest COVID-19 vaccine logistics hub in the Middle East, capable of storing and dispensing tens of millions of doses.

The global logistics center covers a temperature-controlled warehouse with an area of 19,000 square meters.

Taking advantage of the geographic location and developed transplantation services in the UAE, the facility was designed to reach destinations in Africa, Middle East and western Asia.

"This chamber can hold 20 million vaccines at any point in time. So if you can see right now it's approximately 50 percent full of our product in this single chamber," said Robert Sutton, the head of Logistics Cluster, Abu Dhabi Ports.

According to local authorities, more than 50 percent of the vaccines now stored at the new distribution center are made in China.

The UAE officially approved a China-developed COVID-19 vaccine in early December.

Its health authority began offering the Chinese Sinopharm vaccine to Emiratis and Dubai residents for free on Jan 31.

As the vaccine program proceeds smoothly, an official from the health department expressed hope to carry on cooperation with China in healthcare amid the global pandemic.

"There are several vaccines that have been approved for emergency use in the United Arab Emirates. Chinese vaccine is very much playing a key role among these vaccines and vaccinating the population that we are serving. Our relationship with China goes a long way and will continue for so many years to come. We are collaborating on so many different areas. We are collaborating on technology and now on healthcare, and vaccine is no exception," said Dr Omar Najim, chief advisor at Department of Health Abu Dhabi.
