Dubai schools set to return to full in-person learning from October 3

Paediatricians are urging parents to get their children vaccinated against the flu as soon as possible, ideally before wintertime. Medics see the maximum number of infections between August and February — a period widely regarded as the ‘flu season’.
With Dubai schools set to return to full in-person learning from October 3, parents are expressing concern about their children’s health.
At most schools, all staff and a significant number of students aged 16 and older are vaccinated against Covid-19. But schools are now encouraging all students age 12 and older to get inoculated, as well.
