Minister of Health, Dr. Firas Al-Hawari, said Friday that new procedures will take place after the Eid Al-Adha holiday, including the opening of receiving vaccinations without prior appointment or registration on the platform.

In an interview with Jordan TV, he confirmed that receiving the vaccine without an appointment will be available within the aforementioned mechanism for people over 15 years of age, and then gradually for ages over 12 years.

He indicated that the youngest recipient of the vaccine was a 13-year-old child, at the request of his parents.

Al-Hawari indicated that education for the next semester in September will be face-to-face, indicating that this is the strategic goal and that the return will be sustainable.

Of the procedures accompanying the face-to-face return, Al-Hawari said that among them are the vaccination of the educational staff, as well as preparing the classes, introducing the rapid examination, and training the teaching staff on the way to conduct it.

In terms of the epidemiological aspect, and the possibility of maintaining distance education, Al-Hawari said that the epidemiological situation is good, and even if it worsens it will be far better than the second wave. 

Al-Hawari was surprised by the low rates of vaccination, pointing out that Jordan is the only country that was able to provide 4 types of vaccinations and give people freedom - to some extent - to choose the type of vaccination.
