Coronavirus: UAE says receiving COVID-19 vaccine does not reduce risk of infection

The UAE government spokesman Dr. Omar al-Hammadi said on Tuesday that receiving the coronavirus vaccine does not reduce the risk of getting infected with the COVID-19 virus, state news agency WAM reported. “Volunteers taking part in the coronavirus vaccine trial should adhere to relevant preventive procedures, including wearing facemasks and maintaining social distancing. Taking the trial vaccine doesn't necessarily means a person is far from infection of the virus,'' al-Hammadi said in a press conference. “After taking the second dose of the vaccine, volunteers will need a period of up to four weeks to enhance their immunity, and even after this period, their immune systems will only protect them, not other people and their families and colleagues. Therefore, it is essential for them to continue adhering to the precautionary measures,” he added.
