Head of health parliamentary committee, Dr. Assem Araji, stressed that the Lebanese ministry of public health would get 6 million COVID-19 vaccines from different companies in order to vaccinate all the residents in the country, adding that the first batch of Pfizer shots would arrive by early February.
Dr. Araji noted that the batches of the vaccine shots would arrive gradually every week, stressing that the vaccination policy would rely on a data platform in order to reach community immunity.
The World Bank on Thursday said it had approved a re-allocation of $34 million in funds to support Lebanon’s vaccination efforts.
Lebanon has witnessed a sharp increase in the number of the coronavirus cases, with 264647 infections and 2084 deaths.
