Health minister says Israel mulling law requiring teachers to vaccinate

Health Minister Yuli Edelstein says the government is considering passing a law requiring teachers to get vaccinated — or get tested frequently on their own dime.

Edelstein, in a briefing to reporters, says “no one has the right to endanger Israel’s children.”

“Those who don’t want to get vaccinated will be forced to get tested often, possibly at their own expense,” he says.
