Obeidat’s remarks were made as a result of a study which aimed at monitoring the safety of four COVID-19 vaccines, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Sino pharm, and Sputnik V.

659 people who took the vaccine in Jordan participated in the study, which was conducted from January to September 2021.

 Obeidat contended Jordan had a “successful” vaccination program as “all symptoms were recorded through it.”

 The study also found that “most of the side effects and complications experienced by patients did not lead to death.”, according to Obeidat.

He added “the COVID-19 vaccines played an important role in changing the virus’s behavior, the number of recorded cases, and the intensity of infection”, indicating “the virus still exists.”

Obeidat also believes that “there is still a need for the vaccine, as the disease did not vanish and the currently-spread variant spreads faster than previous ones but causes less harm.”

He also added “it is important to take the COVID-19 vaccine”, indicating “many countries now consider the fourth jab of the vaccine important.”
