Watchdog: Lebanon’s vaccination of refugees, migrants lags

BEIRUT (AP) — A leading international rights group says Lebanon’s vaccination campaign has been slow and risks leaving behind some of the country’s most vulnerable people. Those include Palestinian and Syrian refugees, as well as migrant workers. Human Rights Watch said Tuesday the entire vaccination campaign has been slow but that vaccinations of refugees and migrant workers lag even more. It says vaccine shortages is one reason for the delays but also lack of information as well as security fears among refugees. The group urged the government to carry out targeted campaigns among those communities to assuage their concerns.
