The Vaccination Village is set up with a reception area for registrations, a post-vaccination waiting section, vaccination pods, a nursing emergency room, and all that is required to a smooth vaccination process.
The medical center announced in a statement the launch of the Vaccination Village on Tuesday, writing: “We look back at today, February 16, as an important day in the medical field; the day our front-liners received the COVID-19 vaccine, the vaccine of a virus that has been rendering us tired and helpless for almost a year now.”
“Today, we as front-liners, received the first shot, and today, we opened the doors of our Vaccination Village to be one of the vaccination centers in Beirut selected by the Ministry of Public Health for the registration and administration of the vaccine,” the statement added.
More centers are expected to go operational in the coming few days, while the ministry of health has stated that it will provide weekly updates for the number of vaccinated people starting next week.
