Israel to supply 100,000 vaccines for Palestinian workers

Being able to reach 100,000 workers would mark a significant boost in the Palestinian vaccination program and welcome, said Palestinian Health Minister Mai al-Kaila, after Israel agreed to vaccinate that number of Palestinians working in Israel. Thus far, the Palestinians have obtained about 10,000 doses of the Russian Sputnik vaccine donated by Moscow, 2,000 of which of arrived in Gaza this past week. Israel also sent 5,000 doses over to Ramallah in early February to inject health workers.
