Rivlin chides health authorities for sending mixed messages on vaccines

President Reuven Rivlin rebukes the health authorities for sending mixed messages to Israelis on the vaccines.

“The health system must present a unified position,” says Rivlin.

It’s not immediately clear to what messages Rivlin is referring, though his comment came as the health minister and Health Ministry director general presented contradictory information on when the first batch of Moderna vaccines is due to arrive in the country.
