Israel has vaccinated 800,000 people in 12 days

Israel awaits the delivery of another million vaccines to keep up its unparalleled tempo of 150,000 vaccinations a day. Second shots for recipients of the first dose have been set aside for use after three weeks. Since they must be held in reserve, the rate of infection can only be kept up by a large influx of new doses to fill the gap. This, the health ministry reports, has been assured. It may therefore be possible to complete the first round of vaccinations, which has prioritized medical personnel, the elderly and the high-risk groups, by the end of January.
