South Korea and Israel signed a vaccine exchange deal, under which South Korea will receive 700,000 Pfizer vaccines from Israel in July. Korea Disease Control and Prevention Commissioner said that the same amount of the coronavirus vaccines will be returned to Israel from a future order. The time period is expected to be from September to November. He also said the vaccines will be used to stabilize the situation in the Seoul metropolitan area, which has recently seen a spike in the daily coronavirus cases. The vaccines are scheduled to arrive in South Korea early Wednesday morning.
