Shay which one are they using in Israel?
Calvin’s iPad
46:58
what fraction of Israelis are working? How high is the unemployment rate?
Barb Hurwitz
48:22
Shay....are there anti vaccine protests?
Calvin’s iPad
50:24
Are the ultra orthodox, and the Haredi, getting vaccinated in large numbers? My impression is that they were more reluctant than the rest of the population
Mindy Sperling
53:27
What’s the rate of CoVid-19 infection in Israel? Is January among the highest or lowest rate of infection with this SARS-CoVid-2? Can Israel create a home-delivery system? Is Israel still in lock-down?
Susan’s iPad (2)

Is there any estimate of when Israel will open up in-bound travel?
Bill Salganik

Sharon Unger
56:42
What about the Palestinians or Arab neighbors? News reports have stated two different things: that the Palestinian Authorities don't want Israeli shots or Israelis don't WANT to give shots to Palestinians.
bev
56:46
Is it t rue that Israel is sharing the data w/ the pharmaceuticals? Is permission received from the patients?
Betty Silverglate
57:47
I read that part of the deal for Israel to receive the vaccines is that they do statistics regarding the vaccination results.
Mindy Sperling
01:00:13
Will the Israeli vaccine be using the RNA technology?
Mindy Sperling
01:00:24
mRNA
Gary Perolman
01:01:16
Our health care system is a total mess. Why we can't get it together still amazes me!
Mindy Sperling
01:02:19
DoesIsrael have in place a vaccine adverse event reporting system?
Nicki and Yale
01:02:49
IF IF IF America had had an administration (before 1/20) that had organized an effective and efficient distribution plan, we would be in a much better situation.
Nicki and Yale
01:05:34
When you inherit a non-functional plan on 1/20 without any sharing of existing plans and procedures it does take some time to establish an effective and efficient plan.
Mindy Sperling
01:07:08
to motive on the current two vaccines available in Israel, will the development of the Israeli vaccine focus on creating a PEG-free vaccine that contains no petroleum-based distillates in the manufacture of the vaccine product? ?
Mindy Sperling
01:08:22
To improve upon, not to motivate people necessarily
Toni Carr
01:08:27
was there any resistance from citizens to the government quarantine efforts?
peterpollak
01:08:45
The Palestinians have enough money to give to relatives of terrorists, but not enough to buy vaccines for their people.
peterpollak
01:10:14
The PLO would rather than an issue to attack Israel than take care of their own people.
Marilyn Binder
01:14:24
fyi, Israel Bourla, grandson of Thessalonicki Greek Jews, who survived Holocaust, led Pfizer to find Covid vaccine. 83% of those Greek Jews were exterminated.
Calvin’s iPad
01:24:16
the poor rollout of rhe vaccine was due to Trump incompetence and malfeasance as well as a substantially underfunded public health system
bev
01:25:20
apparently drug companies want to make the most profit- even for this pandemic.
Nicki and Yale
01:27:40
Do Arab-Israeli citizens belong to and benefit from these same HMOs?
bev
01:31:54
well....we have medicare which isn't very costly to many
Gary Perolman
01:33:02
Except it really is (lifetime contributions, no benefits) continued contributions and only 80% of approved and no drugs unless you pay more!
Nicki and Yale
01:48:57
Can you talk about Bibi's status and relationship between his pending trial and the upcoming election?
Jeanie Lazerov
