At the end of weeks of preparation: Hundreds of thousands of Pfizer children’s vaccines landed in Israel this morning (Saturday). The vaccines have been transferred to Teva-Sala’s infrastructure, which is leading the logistical aspect of the vaccination campaign in Israel, ahead of their distribution to hundreds of vaccination points next week.
Prime Minister Naftali Bennett Announced yesterday that starting this coming Tuesday, the vaccination campaign for children in the 5-11 age group against the corona virus will begin. In a post he posted on his Facebook page ahead of Saturday, he wrote: “I know there is a certain sensitivity around this matter. There are a lot of people who are afraid to vaccinate children, and they are not necessarily ‘vaccine opponents’ or those who buy angular conspiracy theories. .
Recall that at the end of a discussion of the epidemic treatment team and the corona vaccine advisory team, the Ministry of Health announced the approval of a vaccine for children aged 5-11 against the corona virus. The decision was made by a majority of 73 supporters against only two opponents. On the question of whether to postpone the vaccine until another outbreak of the disease wave, only 8 voted in favor, 64 against.
