The Palestinian Authority has cancelled a deal under which Israel was to give it at least one million Covid vaccines. The authority said the Pfizer jabs were too close to their expiry date. Earlier, Israel said it didn’t need an ageing stock of vaccines and they were to be used to speed up the Palestinian vaccination programme. In return, the Palestinians were to give Israel a similar number of vaccines they are expecting from the Pfizer organisation later in the year. Palestinian Authority Health Minister Mai Alkaila said they had been told the jabs would expire in July or August, but, when they arrived, the marked date was June. “That’s not enough time to use them, so we rejected them,” she said.
