Parliament’s Secretary General, Adnan Daher, indicated on Tuesday that 16 lawmakers received the coronavirus vaccine shot at the House, in the presence of a team from the Ministry of Public Health and the Lebanese Red Cross.
Daher explained that those MPs had already registered for the vaccine on the official online platform and that their turn had come.
Head of the National Committee for Vaccination, Dr. Abdel-Rahman Al-Bizri, on the same day withdrew his resignation after declaring earlier his intention to resign due the vaccination of a number of MPs without the approval of the committee.
“What happened today in terms of the inoculation of MPs is a violation of the vaccination process that cannot be tolerated,” Dr. Bizri said during a press conference he held this afternoon at his Sidon residence.
He also indicated that he called the committee members to a meeting tomorrow to discuss the reasons and justifications.
