What is the population of Israel?

The same as New Jersey. (Almost exactly.) And the size is about the same too.
It is less than the population of NYC, Tokyo, London, Mexico city, greater Los Angeles, or a few other cities.

While a factor it is not the only factor.

The smallest 30 total ~1,000,000 in population. Add the next 30 in and you get approx. the population of Israel. Many of those "Countries" are dependent regions or other territories of other countries.

We have a staying in Persian:
The cat can't reach the meat so he says it stinks.
Population is certainly a factor In terms of available supplies. But surely they have the same logistics challenges when it come to distribution and adminstration per capita.
As for the limited available supplies again IMHO there is no excuse for it. There are millions of people out of work and non essential businesses in shut down around the world. These are unused resources that can be utilized to save millions of lives which will sure be lost In the next few weeks/months/years if more is not done.
Just my 2 cents.
ETA To be fair IIRC Israel has or did at some have the highest number of doctors per capita.

Even though this is a sticky, I figured a bump was in order, as the vaccines are becoming more widely available.

My daughter got eligible through employer and she got the 1st shot on Friday. (tier 1A, phase 3). Long lines, phew! (2 hrs + )
Ah, forgot - and I am done with the 2nd shot.

My wife might get a slot soon. Currently in San Diego county, the tier is at 65+ and medical tiers 1A. My son is in the farther away tier.

Great stuff Batalov. Keep us updated.

Are there any programmes to help to roll out the vaccine to poor countries? I think our PM mentioned something last year but I might be wrong.

My wife received her second dose a few weeks ago. I probably won't get my first shot for another few months.
