    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV, 26 LUG - Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayeh appealed on Monday to Palestinians to get vaccinated, during a cabinet meeting of the Palestinian National Authority (PNA), said WAFA news agency.

    Shtayeh warned that if his appeal doesn't have an effect, it will be necessary to go back to enacting severe restrictions.

    He recalled that it is still always necessary to wear a face mask indoors and practice social distancing.

    According to Palestinian Health Minister May al-Kayleh, a total of 576,000 Palestinians have received at least one vaccination dose.

    Of these, 475,000 live in the West Bank and 100,000 in Gaza.

    Last month, Israel offered the PNA 1.3 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine that were set to expire at the end of July.

    Israel planned to get the same quantity from the PNA in the fall, when Palestinians are expecting a large shipment.

    But the deal was the subject of harsh criticism in Ramallah and didn't materialise. (ANSAmed).
