Netanyahu confirms first Moderna shipment arriving Thursday

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirms the first shipment of Moderna vaccines will arrive in Israel tomorrow.

He says the shots will be administered to those who cannot go to vaccination centers, whether because they’re in quarantine or for other reasons.

Netanyahu does not specify how many shots are set to arrive.

He says he’s still working to move up other vaccine deliveries to Israel.

A Channel 12 report says the first consignment will comprise at least 100,000 doses, and possibly 120,000-130,000.
