Bennett says “Mini-Wave” is mostly among children
Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said on Sunday that he did not foresee a return to major restrictions in the coming months, despite an increase in cases of covid, especially in children.
As Israeli health providers prepare to begin immunizing children aged 5 to 11, Bennett attributed the current “mini-wave” to children who cannot yet be immunized. During a press briefing, he cited official data showing that most recent infections have been in minors.
The four Israeli health providers have announced that parents can now make an appointment to vaccinate their children aged 5 to 11 against COVID-19, after a shipment of one million doses of Pfizer arrived yesterday. for children.
The announcements of HMOs Clalit, Maccabi, Leumit and Meuhedet come as inoculation becomes available on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Bennett urged nearly a million Israelis who did not receive their booster injection to do so. He noted that although Israel is making efforts to buy drugs for COVID, “I would much rather prevent the disease than treat it.”
