The World Bank has threatened to suspend financing for the vaccination program against Covid-19 in Lebanon, amid allegations that people are receiving vaccines without registering or waiting for their turn.

Lebanon began the vaccination program on February 14, after purchasing 28,000 doses of the Pfizer-Bionic vaccine, using part of the $ 34 million allocated to help the country deal with the pandemic.

To ensure fair and transparent distribution, the Lebanese government asked everyone to register on an online platform, whose software identifies those who have priority to receive the vaccine, according to agreed criteria.

Health workers, the elderly and those with chronic diseases were supposed to be vaccinated first.
