Health Ministry director denies there’s a shortage of COVID vaccine doses

The director-general of the Health Ministry denies there is a shortage of coronavirus vaccines, after health providers reportedly said they already distributed all of the doses of Pfizer’s vaccine that they had received.

“There will be vaccines for all the Israeli people, the talk about a shortage isn’t right,” Chezy Levy is quoted saying by the Ynet news site.

In separate remarks to the Kan public broadcaster, Levy says millions of doses are on the way, echoing comments earlier this evening by Prime Minister Netanyahu.
