In parallel, Lebanese citizen Tanios Hagop Toubalian, aged 109, got inoculated at Notre Dame De Secours University Hospital in Jbeil under the supervision of the health advisor to the president, former MP Dr. Walid Khoury, the medical care director at the hospital, Dr Ziad Khoury, and the head of the vaccination department, Mirna Challita.
