Netanyahu: Pfizer promised ‘continuous supply’ of vaccines

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says there will be no shortage of vaccines in Israel.

“I have important news. I spoke yesterday evening with my friend, Pfizer chairman and CEO Albert Bourla. We agreed that there will be a continuous supply of Pfizer vaccines without any shortage by Pfizer; without any shortage, interruption or halt. Go and be vaccinated. We are also receiving more and more and more vaccines from Moderna. Go and be vaccinated,” says Netanyahu, according to a statement from his office.

The comments follow reports suggesting there could be a shortfall.
