Palestinians from Syria in Jordan Deprived of Coronavirus Vaccine

Thousands of Palestinian refugees in Jordan have been denied the right to take anti-coronavirus vaccines on claims that they do not hold legal visas.

The situation of Palestinians from Syria is particularly a cause for alarm as the majority among them have fled the war-torn country and entered neighboring destinations through illegal routes.

A number of Palestinian refugees told AGPS that they are not covered by the latest Interior Ministry decision to vaccinate foreigners.

In its fact sheet entitled “Syria Regional Crisis Emergency Appeal 2021”, UNRWA said Palestinian refugees from Syria (PRS) in Jordan are confronted with increased hardship and vulnerability due to long-term displacement and difficult socio-economic conditions, coupled with the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to UNRWA, 100% of PRS in Jordan are in need of winterization assistance and 17,800 PRS are in need of UNRWA cash assistance.

More than 2 million Palestine refugees registered with UNRWA live in Jordan.

There are ten recognized Palestine refugee camps throughout the country, which accommodate nearly 370,000 Palestine refugees. Jordan hosts the largest number of Palestine refugees of all of the UNWRA fields.
