Caritas Baby Hospital Launches Vaccination Campaign Against COVID-19

Caritas Baby Hospital (CBH) launched today its vaccination campaign against COVID-19 for hospital staff in partnership with the Palestinian Ministry of Health (MoH). Based on the recommendations of the CBH Infection Control Committee, the vaccine was provided to 50 staff members who are in the closest contact with patients.

This comes in conjunction with the national vaccination campaign launched by the MoH on Tuesday, 2 February, after it received 2,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine, followed by 5,000 doses of the Russian Sputnik vaccine, in addition to the 37,000 doses it will receive from the COVAX initiative led by the World Health Organization to provide vaccines for lower-income funded nations. The MoH will proceed with the campaign until it reaches its goal of vaccinating 3 million and 200 thousand Palestinian citizens.
