In preparation for the vaccination phase, Hassan held expanded meetings with representatives of trade unions in the health and medical sectors, and with civil and military representatives in order to regulate the process.
He issued a statement on Monday declaring that “the plan to manage the vaccination file will be announced on Tuesday and will constitute a pivotal stage that depends on transparency and justice to confront the outbreak of the virus in Lebanon.”
He added that vaccination centers will be named through a detailed plan, in order to make sure that there will be a fair distribution of the vaccine in the capital as well as in all governorates.
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees and caretaker Health Minister Hamad Hassan previously agreed on a plan to vaccinate Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.
The plan aims to give priority to medical personnel and set-up vaccination centers close to the most populated refugee camps.
