Netanyahu: “The goal is to bring vaccines to the citizens of Israel”


“Today is a very important day in the global struggle in Corona.” This is what the Prime Minister said following the announcement by Pfizer about the 90 percent efficiency in the vaccine they have developed, adding that “I estimate that several other companies are also advancing to this goal. We are also advancing in our vaccine, it will still take time.”

Netanyahu went on to say that “one thing is clear, not far today, it is not another years – it is another months, that there will be vaccines that will be available to the world population. My goal at the moment is to do one thing – to bring vaccines to you Israeli citizens, and we will do it. “I can see with my own eyes. I said a few days ago that I see the light at the end of the tunnel, I think the locomotive is already coming out of the tunnel.”

Pfizer’s announcement came amid a rise in morbidity, which threatens to halt the reliefs and even bring back further restrictions. Following this, Prime Minister Netanyahu called on the public: “Let us cooperate, let us maintain a low level of morbidity at the moment. Let us not charge too high prices for human life and your health. We can cooperate to maintain health and the economy until vaccinations – and they will come.”

Following reports that government officials contacted Pfizer in an attempt to bring the vaccine to Israel, the director general of the Ministry of Health, Prof. Hezi Levy, told Gali Tzahal that “the big companies started production even before the vaccines ended, so they do not start from scratch, but still It takes time. ”
