The minister posted a picture of herself receiving the vaccine on her official Instagram account, while praising the nurse who who administered it to her.

Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, also received a dose of the Covid-19 vaccine on Friday, October 16.

Last month, the UAE granted approval for the emergency use of the Covid-19 vaccine that is being trialled in the country. The vaccine, developed by China's Sinopharm, is now in the third and final stage of clinical trials and has so far been found safe and effective, according to authorities. Over 31,000 volunteers had received the jab as part of the programme.

With the emergency approval, the vaccine is now being administered to frontline workers and professionals who are at highest risk of contracting the virus. A number of top officials have also taken it.
