Lebanon awaits February vaccine arrival as cases surge

Araji warned that only a mass vaccination campaign could bring the situation under control.
“We expect the first batch of vaccines to arrive in the first week of February.
“The required mechanism for vaccination has been put in place, and it will take place in government hospitals. There are 35 sites for this.”
Araji said that medical and nursing staff, and those aged over 75 will be prioritized for vaccination when the rollout begins.
Does that mean President Michel Aoun and Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri will be first in line for the vaccine, as they are over 80?
“There are other politicians who are over 75 as well,” Araji said. Source: Lebanon awaits February vaccine arrival as cases surge
