The head of the Israel Teachers Union says her members agree with Education Minister Yifat Shasha-Biton’s opposition to administering COVID-19 vaccines at schools.
“There are HMOs and parents and can go vaccinate their kids. Educational institutions will remain educational institutions,” Yaffa Ben-David tells Kan public radio.
Noting differing views on the vaccine, Ben-David says she’s concerned that quarrels could break out between parents and school administrators over inoculation against the coronavirus.
Earlier, Ben-David sent a letter to Shasha-Biton expressing opposition to elements of her plan for reopening schools, which the education minister is currently fighting over with health officials.
