Biden has appointed Bechara Choucair, the Lebanese senior coordinator for vaccinating Americans.
US President-elect Joe Biden, who will succeed Donald Trump on the twentieth of next month, has appointed the Lebanese doctor Bechara Choucair, the general coordinator of vaccines against the Corona virus, as part of his work team to respond to the epidemic.
Shaqeer graduated from the American University of Beirut, and emigrated years ago to America, where he occupied several positions there. He is currently an executive director of Kaiser Permanente. And he will become America’s number one vaccines person, after Biden appointed him to the position to lead vaccine coordination, testing and supply chain strategy.
Choucair, a family medicine specialist, is a public health commissioner in Chicago and specializes in enhancing access to health care as the chief health officer for Kaiser Permanente, the nation’s largest integrated health care delivery system.
Choucair received several awards in America such as the Chicago Under-40s Award from the Crain’s Chicago Business in 2012, and in 2019 he was named one of the 50 Most Influential People in Health by Modern Healthcare. And he moved between several American universities. He is a member of several civil organizations in America.
Along with Choucair, Biden has appointed Carol Johnson and Tim Manning to the pandemic response team, to coordinate the vaccine, testing and supply chain strategy. These officials will play a major role in Biden’s response to the worsening epidemic, Politico reported on Wednesday.
According to the site, it may take years for most Americans to be vaccinated, if the situation continues at current rates of distribution. Only about two million people have received the first dose of the two vaccines approved by the relevant authorities. That is much less than the number that Trump promised to vaccinate before the end of the year. So Biden hired this team to accelerate response and distribute vaccines.
Choucair’s biography, and while it indicates once again the successes achieved by Lebanese individuals in immigrants, today it is more indicative of the failure of Lebanon, the state and society, to manage a country befitting its youth and the aspirations of its children.
