Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke tonight (Wednesday) with the CEO of the pharmaceutical company Pfizer Albert Borla and agreed with him on the purchase of the corona vaccines.
Netanyahu released a video in which he told about the conversation. “I am constantly working to bring vaccines to Israel, and today I have an important message. I have just ended a very warm and cordial conversation with Albert Burla, CEO of Pfizer. Pfizer announced on Tuesday that it has developed a vaccine against corona with 90% efficacy. The whole world wants to get its medicines. We are negotiating with them.
“I asked to speak with him, he immediately replied. It turns out that Albert Burla is very proud of his Greek and Jewish origins from Thessaloniki, and he told me that he very much appreciates the cultivation of relations between Greece and Israel, which I have been leading in recent years,” Netanyahu added.
He said, “After this conversation, which was very matter-of-fact and very practical, I am convinced that we will complete the contract with Pfizer. This is very important news for bringing many vaccines to you, the citizens of Israel. Good luck.”
News 12 reported that the agreement between Netanyahu and the company’s CEO, Albert Burla, is on the supply of three million vaccines – this is 6 million doses, since this vaccine is of course received twice.
A report was published today by the Information and Knowledge Center at the Israel Defense Forces, which estimated that the success of the Pfizer vaccine trial of Pfizer was good news for Israel, even though it did not sign a contract with the company.
This is because a modern company vaccine with which Israel signed a contract to purchase the vaccines works in a similar way to Pfizer.
“To the extent that Moderna’s intermediate results are similar to those of Pfizer, it is likely that by the end of 2020 there will be at least two vaccines approved for use against the corona,” the document said.
The Department of Health signed an agreement with Modern more than four months ago and last month the company’s CEO said that in the near future an official request will be submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to grant emergency approval in a fast-track procedure for vaccine distribution.
The report also has reservations about Pfizer’s announcement, which states that it “relies on data that has not yet been published and has not yet been peer-reviewed, nor does it contain clear data that allows us to examine whether it is a vaccine that prevents vaccination of the vaccinated (or consequently their environment).” It is a vaccine that prevents only disease, and in particular a serious disease – a fact that is crucial for the containment and restraint of the plague. “
