No complications and no side effects were reported as of yet by the newly vaccinated people in Lebanon, according to the Head of Beirut’s Order of Physicians, Sharif Abou Sharaf.
The risk of getting infected by the COVID-19 virus, according to Dr. Sharaf and all health experts, is greater than the vaccine “that has shown effectiveness in alleviating severe injuries and deaths.”
Like all health workers who took the vaccines on Sunday, Dr. Sharaf urges the public to take the vaccine, starting by registering their names on the vaccine registration platform.
Lebanon has been fighting a desperate and hopeless battle against the Coronavirus for almost a year in what have really been mere attempts in dealing with the symptoms from a vulnerable position, with no tools to defend itself against the virus or crush it.
Now, with the inoculation starting, Lebanon has taken its very first step into a real “line of attack” against the vicious virus, arming its people, although gradually, with the power to render it ineffective.
Needless to say that this national war against a common, merciless enemy of the people concerns everybody. Uniting in one front to win the fight is a must.
The more people get vaccinated in the country, the safest for all it will be, and the faster to end this highly disturbing health crisis that has affected 340,861 people in almost a year and lock the people down for far too long.
Lebanon has already lost 4,037 people to the coronavirus, as of the time of writing. On Monday, it recorded 44 new fatalities and 1,739 more cases in only 24 hours.
