Lebanon is holding a Pfizer BioNTech vaccine marathon in the governorates of Akkar, Baalbek-Hermel and Bekaa on Sunday.
Vaccinations start in the morning in selected vaccination centers approved by the Lebanese Ministry of Health in the above-mentioned regions.
The Pfizer Marathon is aimed at people aged 60 and over (born in 1961 and older).
Individuals who are registered on the IMPACT platform for vaccinations must present the identification document they used to register.
Unregistered people can also take part in the marathon if they present one of the following documents: ID card, passport, employee status statement (Ikhraj Qayd Fardi) or other identification document.
Non-Lebanese residents can participate under the same conditions.
The “Pfizer Marathon” starts at 8 am and lasts until 6 pm on Sunday.
According to the Ministry of Health, the event will resume next Sunday and will include the remaining Lebanese governorates.
The Pfizer Marathon builds on the success of the nationwide AstraZeneca Marathon, which took place last Saturday and saw good turnout.
At the time of writing, a total of 849,471 coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine doses have been administered in Lebanon, with 284,995 people having completed vaccination for the disease to date.
