Israel is now vaccinating teenagers for COVID-19, after churning through 3.5 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine, according to reports.

Students born between 2003 and 2004 became eligible for the coronavirus vaccine on Saturday, following a new set of measures implemented Thursday by the Health Ministry to curb the spread of the virus and accelerate immunization efforts.

“Education must be our top priority,” Blue and White leader and Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz said. “After we have ensured that the teachers are vaccinated, we must make sure that the youth can attend their exams and return to the school framework as soon as possible.”
