Health Ministry to cut vaccine supply to HMOs by 10%-20% — report

The Health Ministry has informed healthcare providers that it will reduce its vaccine supply by 10%-20%, according to the Kan public broadcaster.

The report quotes officials in Israel’s HMOs who warn that clinics will have to scale back its current pace of vaccination. The ministry is cutting back on the supply after promising thousands of shots to hospitals, the police, military, medics and other essential services, according to the report. Hospitals joined the vaccine drive earlier this week.

Health Minister Yuli Edelstein earlier today said there are no vaccine shortages.
