Israel authorizes Moderna's COVID vaccine

Israel's Ministry of Health (MOH) has authorized a coronavirus vaccine developed by Moderna Inc., the drugmaker announced in a statement.

The approval paves the way for 6 million doses secured by the Israeli government to be delivered across the country and marks the first time the inoculation was authorized outside of North America, as only the United States and Canada have given the candidate a go-ahead.

"Today's authorization is a landmark moment in our company's history and in the global fight against COVID-19," Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel said about the decision.
