The Ministry of Health Monday began sending text messages to citizens, residents and expatriates who registered for vaccination and are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

A number of citizens told Roya that the text message includes the name of the health center where they will be vaccinated and the time of vaccination. They were also asked to arrive 30 minutes before their appointment, as well as bring an ID and documents that prove their chronic diseases, if applicable. 

Jordan also received the first shipment of the Chinese-Emirati Sinopharm vaccine Saturday evening. The first shipment of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is scheduled to arrive at Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) Monday evening.
