‘Made in UAE’ – Kingdom starts production of own vaccine

Hayat will be the first UAE made Covid-19 vaccine, manufactured by a newly created joint venture between Abu Dhabi’s G42 and Sinopharm. 

The UAE’s vaccine will be called Hayat-Vax – the name Hayat meaning ‘life’ in Arabic. Hayat-Vax is the same Sinopharm vaccine that was registered by the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention in December 2020. 

In a statement, G42 revealed that the joint venture is already producing the vaccine, with an initial capacity of 2 million doses per month.

The announcement comes a day after Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, and Chinese Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, launched a joint project by G42 and Sinopharm to start a production line in the UAE. 

Now, a purpose-built research and development hub for life sciences, biotechnology and vaccine production – the first-of-its-kind in the Arab World – is being set up. 

The new vaccine plant will be operational this year and over its phased development, will have a production capacity of 200 million doses per year across three filling lines and five automated packaging lines. 

Peng Xiao, CEO of G42, said:

“The launch of the vaccine manufacturing capabilities in the UAE is a momentous step in the fight against Covid-19. We are grateful to the shared vision of the UAE and China, their true partnership and collaboration to make this a reality. This initiative in the UAE is a strategic advancement to future-proof the population health of our nations. Our joint venture is also actively looking to bring our capabilities to new markets around the world.”

This first-ever ‘Made in UAE’ Hayat-Vax Covid-19 vaccine will bolster the nationwide vaccination campaign across 205 medical centres in the country.
