The number of vaccinated people (first shot) has finally exceeded the number of reported infections in Lebanon as the ministry reported yesterday that 547,596 have received their first vaccine dose while the total number of declared COVID cases has reached 541,423.

This is very encouraging news as more and more Lebanese are getting vaccinated, but it’s still a long way until we reach the needed vaccination rate as only 6% in Lebanon have received both vaccine shots so far.

A #PfizerMarathon is happening today for anyone aged 60+ in Akkar, Baalback-Hermel & Beqaa. Spread the word and go get vaccinated!
