A shipment of 5,000 doses of the Russian Sputnik COVID-19 vaccine designated for Palestinian health workers in the West Bank and Gaza was delayed for technical reasons. The shipment was expected to arrive this weekend via Jordan, but now the date of the shipment's arrival is unclear. The delay is not connected to Israel, which facilitates the movement of goods and people in and out of the West Bank and Gaza. The Palestinian Authority informed Israel of the delay. On Thursday, the government issued a statement on the matter explaining that the Palestinian Authority has committed to reserve the vaccines solely for the use of health workers in Gaza and the West Bank.
