Over one million people sign up for vaccination, MoH official

More than one million people have signed up on Vaccine.jo, the national Covid vaccination platform, a top Ministry of Health (MoH) official said on Sunday.


The Ministry’s assistant secretary-general for primary healthcare, Ghazi Sharkas, told Petra that a current stable epidemiological situation and higher turnout on vaccination are “good” indicators.


He stressed that these indicators must be followed by stronger commitment and departure from any rumors, urging the public to continue adherence to safety protocols, including the use of masks and social distancing.


Sharkas said the rescheduling of vaccination appointments was based on an extensive study, explaining that the spacing between the two shots still provide the required level of protection for longer periods.
