Vaccination of children aged 5 to 11 has begun in Israel. Vaccination will be carried out with a vaccine produced by Pfizer/BioNTech, The Times Of Israel reports.

Officially, this campaign should start on November 23. However, in some areas where children's doses of the vaccine have already been received, doctors have started vaccinating the day before.

Several hundred people were vaccinated on the first day. In total, the vaccine was reserved for 24,000 children. According to the publication, this is about 2.5% of those eligible for vaccination in this age group.

Earlier it was reported about paramilitary exercises in Israel in preparation for the new Covid-19 outbreak. Their Chief of Staff is Moshe Edri.

As it was reported, CEO of the American company Pfizer Albert Burle said that vaccination against coronavirus will probably be required annually. According to the head of Pfizer, protection against coronavirus after a booster dose is maintained for about a year, but there is no certainty. New research data may change these estimates.
