Tens of millions of vaccine units, of various types, will be manufactured in Yeruham, helping to ensure self-sufficiency
By IDAN ZONSHINE – The Jerusalem Post
The Monday night announcement came after a meeting Sunday between the heads of the IIBR, Yeruham local council and the CEO of an international pharmaceutical company. A model was presented that would allow for the quick establishment of such a facility, if approved by the Israeli government. The announcement came on the heels of what Defense Minister Naftali Bennett called a :major breakthrough” by IIBR in the development of a COVID-19 antibody that attacks the virus and neutralizes it, marking the end of the development phase for the passive vaccine of the virus.
