The five-million mark is a major milestone in the authorities’ efforts towards achieving herd immunity.

The figure placed the country ahead of Israel (1.23 doses for every 100) during the same period, according to statistics compiled by the online scientific publication Our World in Data.

A major vaccination campaign was launched by the UAE in December to inoculate half the population by the end of March.
