Health Ministry officially recommends vaccine for ages 6 months to 5 years

Health Ministry Director-General Nachman Ash officially approves the administration of COVID-19 vaccines for children between the ages of six months and five years, falling in line with the US FDA’s recommendation from last month.

Ash’s approval was the last one required before the beginning of vaccines for that age group in Israel, after a Health Ministry advisory panel on infectious diseases voted unanimously last week in favor of the measure.
