Report: 1 million Moderna vaccines to be delivered to Israel next week

Channel 12 reports that one million vaccines from the US biotech company Moderna will arrive in Israel next week, rather than in March as had previously been agreed.

The report is not immediately confirmed by the Health Ministry.

If confirmed, however, it could make up for a shortfall predicted by the ministry in January, before new batches of the Pfizer-BioNTech shot arrive.
