Israel signed the agreement with Pfizer pharmaceutical company. It provides for procurement of millions doses of vaccine from coronavirus. These are supposed to cover the needs of the Israelis by the end of 2022.
"I'm pleased to say that we signed a deal with Pfizer company about the procurement of millions of doses of the vaccine in 2022", Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wrote on his Telegram account.
Press office of the President claimed that the document also features a provision, which provides for additional procurement of millions of doses in case of necessity (if the country will need to stand against new mutations of the disease).
In early April, the media reported that the quarantine was easing up in this country, as the daily numbers of new cases tended to drop. Israeli hospitals started losing Covid-units, as the number of patients reduces.
Several days before these reports, Netanyahu claimed that Israel became the first country to beat coronavirus pandemic. It became possible thanks to the fast and efficient vaccination campaign.
