Dubai Health Authority (DHA) is requesting that everyone visiting its vaccination facilities must bring three documents with them.
In a post on social media, the DHA says people have to take along their Emirates ID, a copy of their valid Dubai residence visa and a medical report providing evidence of a chronic illness.
On Saturday, the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) updated vaccination eligibility for the next four to six weeks.
All COVID-19 vaccination centres in the UAE are focusing on inoculating the elderly and people with chronic diseases in light of the recent spike in infections.
People who do not fall within these categories can still receive the vaccine if they had booked an appointment earlier.
