Jerusalem: A nationwide vaccination campaign against Covid – 19 for children aged between six months to five years was launched in Israel.

The vaccination will provide children “with an important protection layer against serious illness and post-Covid symptoms,” said a statement issued by the Israeli Health Ministry on the evening of Sunday July 31.

The vaccine is especially recommended for children at risk of severe Covid – 19 illness due to underlying health conditions that impair the immune system, the Ministry added.

The vaccine jabs will either be three doses of the Pfizer vaccine or two doses of the Moderna vaccine, said the Ministry.

Vaccination for children under the age of five was approved by the Ministry’s Director General Nachman Ash earlier this July, following a recommendation by a panel of experts.
