Abu Dhabi’s SEHA opens new Covid-19 drive-through centre offering vaccination, testing services

The centre has the capacity for 200 vaccinations and 1,000 nasal swabs and laser tests per day

Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) has opened a new Covid-19 drive-through services centre in the Rabdan area in Abu Dhabi.

The new centre features six tracks including two for vaccination and four for nasal swabs and DPI laser-based testing.

The centre has the capacity for 200 vaccinations and 1,000 nasal swabs and laser tests per day, official news agency WAM reported.

It will be open from Saturday to Thursday, from 8am to 8pm and on Fridays from 10am to 8pm.

Those looking to receive the vaccine or undergo Covid screening can book an appointment through SEHA’s app.

The centre was built utilising shipping containers, similar to the centres recently opened in Al Sarouj in Al Ain and Al Manhal in Abu Dhabi.

The shipping containers are more durable and adaptable and provide a very high level of heat and cold resistance. They are also easier to move, reuse, and maintain, the report stated.

The new centre brings the total number of Covid-19 drive-through services centres managed by SEHA to seven in the city of Abu Dhabi including in Al Madina, Al Manhal, Zayed Sports City, Al Bahia, Al Shamkha and Al Wathba; and to 22 across the UAE.

The UAE reported 1,565 new coronavirus cases on Saturday, bringing the total number of infections in the country to 659,449.

It also announced four deaths due to Covid-19 complications, with the death toll now at 1,896.

Meanwhile, the total number of recoveries has reached 637,267.

The total number of vaccine doses provided as of Saturday stands at over 16.34 million, with a rate of vaccine distribution of 165.23 doses per 100 people.
