The head of the coronavirus portfolio Wael al Hayajneh Friday said the COVID-19 vaccine will arrive in Jordan between January and February.
He told Jordan TV that many vaccines have the ability to protect against coronavirus and prevent further spreading of the virus. He added that Jordan is not only looking at effectiveness but rather the side effects that could affect the people who get vaccinated.
He pointed out that the people who died after getting the vaccine include people who were given placebos and others who suffered from chronic diseases.
The COVID-19 situation in Jordan is stable, and the number of cases and deaths is decreasing. Hayajneh said this decrease is due to the citizens' commitment to public safety measures, including wearing facemasks and social distancing.
He said the Ministry of Health will introduce a new vaccine for children, the pneumococcal vaccine, which will be given to them free of charge.
