Protecting children from rotavirus in Jordan
Kholud, 3 months old, receives her rotavirus, hexa and polio vaccinations in Azraq Refugee Camp.
To keep children safe and healthy in the camp, UNICEF supports the Ministry of Health to provide immunization services in the camp and empowers parents to protect their children with vaccines. This is particularly important in refugee camps, where disease can spread quickly.
Children in their earliest years are most vulnerable to contracting communicable diseases in challenging living environments.
“The vaccines protect her from sickness
and disease. I hope for her to have all
the good things in life and an education.”
