UAE Mandates COVID-19 Vaccines for Live Events
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has announced mandatory vaccinations against COVID-19 for people attending all "live events" from June 6, as the nation promotes one of the fastest vaccination agendas in the world. A spokeswoman for the UAE ministry of health said all sports, cultural, social, arts exhibition, activities and events must follow this mandate, and attendees must also present a negative COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction test administered at least 48 hours before the event. The city of Dubai recently said that COVID-19 vaccinations were required to participate in and attend concerts, sports events, bars, entertainment activities and weddings with up to 100 people. The UAE estimated that more than 78.11% of the eligible population over 16 years old was currently vaccinated, as was 84.59% of people 60 and older.
