“They are special vaccines for children,” Bennett says. “They are modified and contain only one-third of the adult dose.” Millions of children around the world, especially in the United States, have already received such a vaccine. “Vaccines are safe and effective. They ensure the health of our children.”
Bennett also referred to the recent wave of Corona in Europe. After all, the reproduction number is also rising in Israel, which is a measure of how far the virus has progressed or slowed. “Winter has begun and it is clear that we are facing a wave of illness among children.”
Bennett’s son, David, will be one of the first children in that age group to get the vaccine. “I expect this from all the other parents in Israel, and certainly also from ministers who have children and grandchildren at this age.”
Moreover, according to the Israeli Prime Minister, the current corona numbers do not mean that the relaxation of corona rules is imminent. Israel is “open and safe” and does everything in its power to keep it that way.
A week ago, the Israeli Ministry of Health decided to enable the vaccine from Pfizer/Bioantek for children aged 5 to 11 years. According to the media, about a million children are eligible for this shot.
