Over 200 vaccinated at Syrian displacement camp for jihadists’ families

More than 200 people have been vaccinated against COVID-19 in northeast Syria’s densely-populated Al-Hol camp for the displaced and families of defeated jihadists, a government official says.

The vaccination drive, using AstraZeneca jabs under the Covax program for low-income parts of the world, covers government-held areas and territory run by a Kurdish local administration.

Syrian health ministry teams had inoculated 205 people up until Wednesday in Al-Hol camp of Hasakeh province, the ministry’s provincial chief Issa al-Khalaf tells AFP.
