Israel doesn’t need the AstraZeneca jabs it ordered, says pandemic coordinator, govt trying to ‘divert them elsewhere’
Israels coronavirus response chief said the country is trying to divert millions of doses of AstraZenecas Covid-19 vaccine which have already been ordered, claiming the government has enough supply through to 2022.
Speaking to Army Radio on Wednesday, Nachman Ash, Israel’s national pandemic coordinator, said the country no longer needed the 10 million AstraZeneca jabs it ordered, claiming that other companies were meeting its needs.
“We are trying to find the best solution. After all, we don’t want (the vaccines) to get here and have to throw them into the trash,” Ash stated, adding that the country had supplies secured by other producers until 2022.
“It's best that AstraZeneca vaccines do not reach the country. At a time when we did not know which vaccine would be more effective, we made agreements with a number of companies – and now we do not need them,” he said, without noting the apparent links between the vaccine and very rare blood clot cases.
Ash added that the government was working with the firm to ensure the vaccines found their way to countries in need.
