VACCINE CONTRIBUTED BY THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES

 

Malaysia today received the second batch of 500,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine contributed by the Government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It was handed over by the officials from the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Kuala Lumpur to the officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Defense at a ceremony held at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport. The first batch of 500,000 doses of vaccines had arrived in Malaysia on 25 January 2022. In 2021, the UAE announced a contribution of one million doses of COVID-19 vaccines to Malaysia.

 

Malaysia highly values the UAE’s COVID-19 assistance to Malaysia, particularly the vaccine contributions that significantly complement Malaysia’s efforts to address the pandemic. The contributions also signify important milestones in the Malaysia - UAE cooperation in the field of health diplomacy to address the COVID-19 pandemic.
