Teachers won’t be vaccinated this week — report

The Health Ministry is rebuffing demands by teachers to start receiving the COVID-19 vaccines this week, according to the Walla news site.

Health Ministry Director General Chezy Levy informed the healthcare providers on Sunday night that they should continue to vaccinate only those over 60 or people with chronic conditions, the report says.

Teachers have declared a labor dispute, demanding the ministry begin administering the shots to educational staff.
