• Bloomberg reports that Israel, which made an agreement with Pfizer to provide extensive data about its coronavirus vaccine program in exchange for increasing and expediting vaccine deliveries, is storing 100,000 doses of the Moderna coronavirus vaccine. Eli Gilad, a senior official at the Ministry of Health, said that “… it isn’t worth putting another vaccine into circulation when the country is using millions of Pfizer doses.” Although Israel has sent 2,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine to health care workers in Palestine and plans to send 3,000 additional doses, it has no plans to provide more vaccines to Palestinians in its occupied territories.
