What the implications are for Israel and the United Arab Emirates:
Israel has been the global leader in vaccinating its population against COVID-19, followed by the United Arab Emirates. More than half of the Israeli population has been at least partially vaccinated. The country’s well-trained health care providers and a digitized community-based health system that can identify high-risk persons have been major factors in the success. The country also has a tradition of periodic emergency preparedness exercises.
The United Arab Emirates hasn’t been far behind. It has about the same population as Israel and contributes its rapid vaccination pace to coordinated government action, strong leadership, public awareness campaigns, and simple vaccination registration procedures using a Health Ministry app.
As the saying goes:
Don’t Hesitate – Vaccinate!
