Health Ministry answers inquiries about COVID-19 vaccines

The Ministry of Health answered some of the inquiries that concern the Jordanian community on its social media pages Friday.

The first question inquired about contracting a COVID-19 infection after taking the first dose of a vaccine. They askd whether the virus would be more dangerous and whether it would affect the date of the second dose.

The ministry responded by saying, "The COVID-19 infection would not be more dangerous. However, the second vaccine dose would be rescheduled until three weeks after the individual has tested negative for an infection."

Notably, the ministry affirmed that people with chronic diseases and cancer have priority in taking the coronavirus vaccine, regardless of their age, in its response to one of the inquiries.

The ministry indicated that people with a known history of anaphylaxis to any vaccine or any injection therapy, must have a specialist doctor decide the appropriate procedure.

Additionally, they added that all people must be vaccinated in a health care environment, where anaphylaxis can be treated immediately, and those with anaphylaxis must be monitored for 15 minutes post vaccination.
