Vying for vaccines, Jewish Israelis help fill near-empty clinics in Arab towns

In Israel, Arab communities have welcomed those from neighboring Jewish communities into their cities to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as a means of "helping firm up the sluggish response to the vaccination drive among Arabs." Using social media and communication apps to determine where doses are available, Jewish Iranians have been "flocking" to Arab towns which in turn has created a "vaccine-bolstering buzz" among Arabs and encouraged many to also get the vaccination after initial hesitation and reluctance.
