The Ministry of Health and Prevention of the United Arab Emirates announced on Thursday that it approved Russia's COVID-19 vaccine Sputnik V for emergency use, APA reports citing Teletrader.

The jab, developed by the Gamaleya Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology, is the third vaccine approved by the country's medical authorities so far.

"Study results have demonstrated the effectiveness of the vaccine in triggering a strong antibody response against the virus, its safety for use, and its compliance with international safety and effectiveness standards," the ministry's statement noted.
