Lebanon is set to begin its vaccination campaign on Sunday, February 14th, according to a statement by caretaker Prime Minister Hassan Diab‘s press office.

The news came after a meeting between Diab and caretaker Health Minister Hamad Hassan, in which the latter revealed that the first batch of COVID-19 vaccines will arrive in Lebanon on Saturday evening.

Accordingly, the very next day, Lebanon will launch the vaccination campaign from the Grand Serail.

The Lebanese government has reserved a total of 2.1 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, which are set to arrive in similar shipments.

While the number of cases is still high, Lebanon has begun the first of four stages to slowly and gradually reopen the country.
