    Vaccination Campaign launched by LAU, AUB, USJ and Saint George University Medical Center 
     
    As you know, Lebanon is experiencing extremely challenging times. Lebanese American University continues to rise to the challenge
      
    Lebanese American University (LAU), the American University of Beirut (AUB), l'Université Saint-Joseph (USJ), and Saint George Hospital University Medical Center (SGHUMC) are combining their purchasing power to secure 
    over 200,000 vaccines from FDA-approved manufacturers.  
      
    LAU will begin by vaccinating students, faculty and staff, and then, in accordance with government regulations, will vaccinate the surrounding community free of charge.  
      
    Without these efforts, a full vaccine roll-out would not be completed in Lebanon until 2025. 
    We simply cannot wait that long. The only way forward is through vaccinating the majority of Lebanon’s population to reach herd immunity. 
      
    Securing these vaccines requires considerable resources. Fortunately, we have raised $1.6 million from some very generous donors. To complete the final stretch, 
    we need your help.  
      
    Vaccinations are essential for the nation to return to some level of normalcy and for LAU to safeguard its future. 
      

    A donation of any amount will go a long way to ensure that vaccines are shipped to Lebanon immediately. Fresh dollars from the U.S. are especially needed at this time. 
      
    We urge you to join our efforts to safeguard the future of our university, community, and our country. Thank you for helping us 
    vaccinate Lebanon!
