Israel to get 6 million Pfizer vaccines in January to for kids aged 5-11: report

Israel will get a shipment of 6 million Pfizer vaccines in early January to help a campaign to vaccinate children aged 5-11 that is expected to kick off in the coming weeks after the FDA approves it, the Kan public broadcaster reports.

Kan says Israel currently has enough doses to start the vaccination drive, and that the new shipment will help expand it and also give booster shots to teens aged 12-15, who will become eligible for their third dose mid-January.
