Bennett: I can report to you, Mr. President, that the COVID boosters are working

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett says the two sides will also discuss the ongoing pandemic in their subsequent closed-door meeting.

“You were the first to call the pandemic the ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated,’ and that could not be more true,” Bennett says.

He notes the “tough decision” he made last month to pioneer the distribution of a third booster shot for Israelis.

“I can report to you, Mr. President, and to everyone that we’ve reached almost three million Israelis that have received the booster shot. And the bottom line is, it’s safe and it works,” he says.

“The good news, finally, is that the tide is turning in Israel,” he says.
