The Director of the Coronavirus Crisis Cell Mazen Al-Faraya said that the government is working to intensify the vaccination process of healthcare workers in public and private sectors across Jordan.

Faraya added in a letter addressed to the Minister of Health Nathir Obeidat Thursday that this plan should be implemented immediately due to the huge increase in the number of coronavirus cases and deaths in the Kingdom.

He pointed out that Thursdays are considered an 'open day' for vaccinating medical personnel in the public sector.
Regarding the private sector, Faraya indicated that the vaccination process for the medical staff working in private sectors will take place during the next week.

Notably, earlier Thursday the Jordan Medical Association (JMA) expressed their disappointment with the government for not receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.

The JMA added that they have received many complaints from doctors saying that they have not been given the priority to receive a coronavirus vaccine.

The JMA called on the government to give priority to medical workers to receive the vaccine.
