The four centers designated for vaccinating teachers were found to be extremely disorganized this morning, prompting many teachers to leave without receiving a vaccine. 

The Minister of Education, Higher Education and Scientific Research, Muhammad Abu Qdais, even canceled his visit to one of the four centers designated for vaccination due to overcrowding. 

Abu Qdais called on teachers and their husbands and wives to register on the national vaccine platform before reaching the vaccination centers, however, upon arrival, teachers were suprised to find that their names were not on the list, leading to confusion among the crowds and stifling traffic near the vaccine centers.

The vaccination campaign was launched by the Ministry of Education Tuesday in cooperation with the Ministry of Health and the National Center for Security and Crisis Management (NCSCM). The Ministry had allocated four centers in Amman to administer the vaccine, which are the King Abdullah School for Excellence in Qweismeh, Al-Isra Co-Education Elementary School in Kasbah, Amman, Tla'a Al-Ali Secondary School for Girls, and the Imam Malik Secondary School for Boys in Al-Qusour, Marka.
