Israel has received its first shipment of coronavirus vaccines from Pfizer, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowing to take the first jab, APA reports citing BBC.

Netanyahu said the delivery was a “great celebration” for Israel as he stood on the tarmac at Ben Gurion airport, where batches of the vaccine were unloaded from a cargo plane.

“I want to serve as an example to them and I intend to be the first to be injected with this vaccine in the state of Israel,” Netanyahu told reporters.

Note that the first Pfizer jabs were given to people in the UK on Monday.
