Jordan To Vaccinate Children Aged 12 Years And Older Against COVID – 19

Jordan will start vaccinating children aged 12 years and older against COVID – 19 from Sunday, the state news agency said on Saturday.

Children can be given the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine with the approval of a guardian with no prior appointment necessary, the agency quoted the health ministry as saying.

The decision comes as Jordan lifted most restrictions at the start of July, reopening gyms, pools and night clubs at hotels after cases dropped from a peak in March when several thousands of new cases were recorded daily.

Total active cases reached 7,489 on Friday with 331 new cases and four deaths.

Since the start of the pandemic, Jordan has recorded a total of 763,437 cases and 9,933.
