The state is interested in the continuous process of vaccination of the population 24 hours a day, the head of the country’s health ministry said.
The Israeli government expects to reach at least 150,000 coronaviruses vaccinated per day. Millions of Israelis are expected to receive their first dose of vaccine in a month. The Times of Israel reports.
The General Director of the Ministry of Health, Cesi Levy, said that the state is interested in a continuous process of vaccination of the population 24 hours a day, but noted that this depends on the will of citizens and the availability of vaccines.
“But it all depends on two things – first, on whether Pfizer and Moderna can increase the supply of vaccines to Israel. And second, of course, the desire of the population to go to get vaccinated,” Levy said.
Israel expects to have four million doses of Pfizer vaccine by the end of the month, and another four million by the end of March. The government has also agreed on six million doses of Moderna, but media reports say it will not be shipped to Israel until April.
In the long term, most of the population can be vaccinated by the end of March.
