Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz are holding a meeting to discuss Israel’s stash of COVID vaccines.

Israel’s stockpile of Pfizer vaccines is set to expire at the end of the month, and it has been working — so far unsuccessfully — to secure a vaccine swap deal with another country in exchange for its future doses.

Bennett has held several conversations in recent days with Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, and has reportedly been granted an extension by the company on a decision whether to order another million Pfizer doses for delivery in September.
