This year, 71-year-old Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was vaccinated with the Corona 19 vaccine jointly developed by Pfizer and Bioentech while being broadcast live on TV.

Israel began vaccination on the 19th, starting with Prime Minister Netanyahu and Health Minister Yuri Edelstein.

Prime Minister Netanyahu said he was the first to get the vaccine to set an example.

Israel, with a population of about 9 million, has secured a COVID-19 vaccine with a total of 14 million doses, including 8 million doses of Pfizer-Bioentech and 6 million doses of Modena.

Israel has become the fifth country to initiate Pfizer-Bioentech’s COVID-19 vaccination.

Prior to Israel, Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccination began in the UK on the 8th, the US and Canada on the 14th, and Saudi Arabia on the 17th.

Also, on the 27th, EU member states such as Germany are planning to enter the vaccination.

Before Prime Minister Netanyahu, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence was vaccinated at the White House while it was broadcast live on TV on the 18th.

But US President Donald Trump hasn’t given the vaccine yet.

U.S. President-elect Joe Biden will be vaccinated against Corona 19 on the 21st of the local time.
