Gaza begins vaccination campaign in schools

A campaign to vaccinate secondary school students against the coronavirus was launched in Gaza

A campaign to vaccinate secondary school students against the coronavirus was launched in Gaza today.

The Ministry of Education said vaccinating the nearly 100,000 high school students will increase community and school immunity, adding that it had put in place measures to ensure the school environment is safe including through disinfecting classrooms daily and the continued use of face masks.

It has also equipped medical teams and laid out the logistics for vaccinating students across the enclave.

The ministry renewed its call on citizens to quickly go to vaccination centres to receive the inoculation, stressing that the vaccines are available in sufficient quantities, are safe and provide the highest degree of protection in order to reach a good level of community immunity to avoid future closures or the emergence of a new wave of the disease.
