Young members of the Abu Dhabi ruling family have joined the Sinopharm vaccine study on children.

Sheikh Theyab bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Crown Prince's Court, accompanied his children, nieces and nephews as they participated in the trial.

A video shared by the Abu Dhabi Government Media Office shows the young royals join other children in the study.

In total, 900 volunteers aged 3 to 17 will take part in the 'immune bridge study' with the consent of their parents.

It is seen as a significant next step in combating the pandemic.
