The Palestinian Authority Health Ministry announced on Friday that it has struck a deal with the Israeli Health Ministry to vaccinate 100,000 Palestinians who work in Israel. The agreement was announced after senior Health Ministry officials visited Ramallah on Friday and met with their Palestinian counterparts to evaluate the situation there in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Understanding that Israel and the Palestinians live in one area and that an outbreak of COVID-19 among the Palestinian Authority may also affect the infection rate among Israeli residents, senior ministry officials visited with the PA Health Ministry and received a briefing on the coronavirus situation in the PA, morbidity data and the epidemiological investigations that are taking place,” the ministry said in a statement. The visit included Health Ministry Director-General Chezy Levy, Head of Public Health Services Dr. Sharon Alroy-Preis and Coronavirus Commissioner Prof. Nachman Ash. It is extremely rare for Israeli officials to go to Ramallah for a meeting.
