Prime Minister Naftali Bennett accompanied his son David (9) as he received the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine today (Tuesday, 23 November 2021), at a Clalit Health Services clinic in Herzliya.
Following is an excerpt from Prime Minister Bennett's remarks:
"Today we are starting the nationwide campaign to vaccinate children, first of all to safeguard our children.
David was just vaccinated. This safeguards both children and parents, and the entire State of Israel.
I call on all Israeli parents to come and have their children vaccinated. It is safe and it safeguards our children."
David Bennett, the Prime Minister's son:
"It is important to get vaccinated so that children don't get sick with corona and so that they won’t infect their parents."
