Jordan becomes one of world's first nations to vaccinate refugees - UNHCR

Amman, Jan 14 (UNI) The United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) on Thursday praised Jordan for becoming one of the world's first countries to vaccinate refugees from COVID-19 and for including them in the vaccination campaign.
Jordan launched its campaign on Wednesday, which prioritizes the elderly and health workers. The country is using vaccines developed by Pfizer and China’s Sinopharm.
"Once again Jordan has shown exemplary leadership and solidarity in hosting refugees. The country has included refugees in every aspect of the public health response to the pandemic, including the national vaccination campaign, proving how it should be done if we are to keep everyone safe," UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi said, as quoted by the UNHCR in a press release.
