Prime Minister Naftali Bennett issues a call to the parents of 5- to 11-year-olds to take their children to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.

“There is no reason to leave our children unprotected,” says Bennett. “There is no reason that your child should get infected and infect others when his whole life is ahead of him.”

Bennett notes that COVID is still around and cases are rising in Europe: “The most threatening thing is not the current situation — it’s what we don’t know yet.”
