Health Ministry begins administering COVID-19 vaccines to 12-year-olds

The Ministry of Health decided to reduce the age of vaccination against the coronavirus to 12 years, starting Sunday, without prior appointment.

The ministry indicated that the vaccination will be optional. The Pfizer vaccine will be used specifically for those under the age of 18, and with the consent of a parent or legal guardian.

In a north Madaba health center, vaccines began to be given to adolescents and children over the age of 12.

The twin brothers, Sultan and Salma Abu Wendy, received the first two 12-year-old children to receive the jabs, amid a great demand from citizens to receive the vaccine, in an indication that the culture of receiving the vaccine is growing because of its importance in building and forming herd immunity.

The ministry indicated that the first dose vaccination centers and the type of vaccination will be announced daily on the ministry's website, its pages on social media, and local media.
