Pfizer CEO to visit Israel in March — report

The CEO of Pfizer, Albert Bourla, will visit Israel on March 8, Channel 12 reports.

Bourla’s trip comes as Pfizer’s delivery of 10 million vaccine doses to Israel — enough to vaccinate 5 million — is set to be completed. Bourla may bring additional vaccines, Channel 12 says.

Bourla’s visit will come several weeks before the Israeli elections. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made Israel’s vaccination success a centerpiece of his campaign, touting his personal ties with Bourla, who is the son of Holocaust survivors.
