The Health Ministry says over 100,000 people in Israel between the ages of 12 and 16 years old have now been vaccinated, as it pushes to increase immunization rates among that age cohort.

“This is an unprecedented achievement,” the ministry says in a statement, while reiterating its call for anyone over 12 who wants to get vaccinated to do so.
