Over a dozen thousand people have been vaccinated so far as part of the “Pfizer Marathon” that is taking place in Lebanon.
As of 3 PM, 13,516 individuals have received their Pfizer-BioNTech jab in the marathon across the country, according to the Lebanese Health Ministry.
The nationwide Pfizer Marathon started at 8 AM in authorized vaccination centers, with encouraging numbers recorded early on during the day.
The ongoing event targets people aged 55 and above, as well as people with special needs who are 16 years old and above.
Vaccination will continue until 6 PM and resume on Sunday morning, at 8 AM, for another 10 hours.
Every resident in Lebanon, including non-Lebanese nationals, is allowed to participate in the Pfizer Marathon and get vaccinated against coronavirus (COVID-19), provided that they are part of the targeted groups mentioned above.
How do I participate?
If you are registered on the dedicated IMPACT vaccination platform, you are required to bring the identification document you used in the registration process with you to the accredited vaccination center.
If you haven’t registered, on the other hand, you will be registered at the vaccination center with help from the staff present there, provided that you bring one of the following documents with you:
Personal registry extract
Vaccination certificate from the municipality
Any other identification document
It is recommended to register on the platform (here) before going to a vaccination center, as this would facilitate the process for you while making time for more people to be vaccinated.
