Lobkowicz, L., Lahoud, J. & Bou-Orm, I. (2021) Addressing the COVID-19 emergency during the ongoing political and economic crisis in Fragile Lebanon: A call to action. Conflict and Health, 15:66.
This Letter to the Editor aims to reflect on the current challenges to increase the coverage of COVID-19 vaccination in the fragile and conflict-affected setting of Lebanon, which is currently experiencing one of the biggest economic crises globally as well as a recent surge in COVID-19 cases. Addressing the supply- and demand-related factors affecting vaccination would increase COVID-19 vaccine coverage and prevent the complete collapse of an already overwhelmed Lebanese health care system.
