Safed, Yeruham offer COVID vaccines to Israelis under 60

The northern city of Safed and southern town of Yeruham are allowing the general population to receive COVID-19 vaccines, despite a Health Ministry order to only inoculate those over 60 years old, reports Channel 12.

Residents of the city are alerted that they are eligible to receive the vaccine, regardless of age.

The Health Ministry tells the network it’s unaware of the directives.
