Virus czar says vaccines may be available to all ages from next week

Coronavirus czar Nachman Ash says the coronavirus vaccine may be opened to all age groups as soon as next week.

“The next stage is opening it up to all, there is no longer any point in this age priority listing,” he tells Army Radio. “There is a possibility that it will be next week. We will have a meeting and decide.”

Over 2.3 million Israelis have received the first dose of the vaccine, and nearly 700,000 have received both shots.
