Queen Rania encourages Jordanians to receive the Corona vaccine
Queen Rania, wife of Jordan's King Abdullah II, encouraged members of the local community in the southern city of Shobak to receive vaccines against Covid-19, with the increase in cases of infection in the Kingdom.
Queen Rania sat in a traditional tent with a protective mask on, and met with representatives of local communities, owners of income-generating projects and local officials.
She said: "We want to encourage you to get vaccinated, so you know that we are our master, me and the children, and we were all fed from the beginning, because this is the only thing we know that can protect us."
And she added: "We see that it is now emerging, meaning a new type of corona that is spreading very quickly, but at the same time, see in the media how people are skeptical about the emergence of stories that are not right because of people's fear of vaccination, and unfortunately this is what can harm our country."
The Queen stressed that vaccination is the only solution to the return of normal, social life and economic activity.
The Queen's visit to the Shobak region came in the wake of the implementation of the community grants plan supported by the Jordanian Royal Court in Ma'an Governorate.
The plan enables residents to launch their own income-generating projects.
The Queen's message comes at a time when Jordan is struggling with reluctance to receive vaccinations.
The Jordanian Ministry of Health said that two million and 173,912 people received the first dose of the vaccine.
Since the outbreak of the pandemic, Jordan has recorded 768,382 injuries, and ten thousand deaths.
