BAU students and COVID 19 vaccination

22 February 2021


In line with the mission of Beirut Arab University to serve the Lebanese community and based on its partnership with the health sector in Lebanon, Nursing students at the Faculty of Health Sciences-Tripoli branch are participating in the National Covid-19 vaccination Program organized by the Ministry of Health. Students have volunteered to assist the team at the forefront of vaccine delivery at Albert Haykel Hospital, a ministry of health-approved vaccination center in North Lebanon. The team includes a group of administrators, clinicians and nurses assigned to follow up the vaccinated individuals during and after their vaccination process. This students’ commitment represents one of several activities organized by the Faculty of Health Sciences since the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic in order to raise awareness about the disease and assist the nursing staff, especially during the peak of COVID 19 pandemic and nurses’ deficiency. Furthermore, the students of the faculty are spreading massive awareness towards the importance of vaccination in order to encourage the citizens and achieve the required community immunization in a short period of time. What is worth mentioning that students of the Nursing Department will be endorsing their voluntary support action throughout the National Campaign period in Lebanon.
