To reach herd immunity among the Lebanese society, Lebanon needs to ensure the vaccination of 80% of its population. However, that could only be ensured depending on the number of vaccines that will arrive, their quality, and the rate of willingness among the Lebanese to take the vaccine.
All in all, to reach 80% immunity, it will probably take 6 to 9 months, according to Bizri.
