The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) on Tuesday announced it was approving a longer interval period between doses for the Oxford-AstraZeneca Covid vaccine.

“Based on recent studies from the University of Oxford on the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine and as per the recommendations of the WHO, DHA has approved a 10-week interval between the 1st & 2nd dose of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine,” the authority said in a post published on its official social media account.

Recent studies showed a higher efficacy and higher acquired immunity when the dosing interval between the first and second doses was increased, it explained.
