Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas receives coronavirus vaccine

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has been injected with a coronavirus vaccine, the PA’s official Wafa news agency confirms.

It is not clear what vaccine Abbas received nor when he received it, but Wafa says he got a first shot, implying it is a two-dose vaccine. Previous statements by the PA Health Ministry indicated many senior Palestinian officials have already been vaccinated after shipments of the Moderna and Russian Sputnik V vaccines arrived in Ramallah last month.
