An Israeli hospital’s program to vaccinate Palestinians who work in Israel is beneficial to both Palestinians and Israelis.

As the Palestinian Authority kicks off its vaccine campaign, a new program organized by Israel’s Sheba Tel Hashomer Medical Center is setting up vaccine clinics at checkpoints bordering PA-administered towns and villages order to vaccinate Palestinians workers entering Israel.

Prof. Arnon Afek, the hospital’s director-general, explains the initiative, saying this could be just the beginning of further medical cooperation between the Israelis and Palestinians.
