Prime Minister's Ultimatum: Bennett Clashed With Education Minister

Premier's ultimatum: Bennett got into conflict with the Minister of Education

Education Minister Ifat Shasha Biton asked during a Monday meeting between Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Education Ministry officials to increase mobile vaccination sites in schools. To this Bennett replied in the negative, but offered to make a day off for the vaccination of students under the supervision of teachers.

Thus, the vaccination campaign will be expanded by in-line vaccination. Vaccination sites will leave schools in a week and a half.

The ministry of education and the teachers' union did not like the prime minister's proposal, and both institutes opposed the use of their weekends as such.

Arya Mor, senior deputy director for safety, security and emergency at the ministry of education, said that over the past week and a half, 17,500 pupils aged 5 to 11 have been vaccinated. And 25% of this age group are isolated.

The vaccination schedule has already been drawn up, and more vaccinations are needed. Therefore, the vaccination campaign will simply continue in the near future. The number of vaccinated children has increased significantly. And so far, in fact, only the Arab sector is pulling the statistics on vaccination rates back.

Last night, the government's epidemic team approved a fourth vaccine for people aged 60 and over, as well as for medical personnel .

70% or more, the rest will study remotely.

The Minister of Education Shasha Biton strongly opposed this, saying that in this way too many children will be sent to distance education, which will not lead to anything good. To which Bennett replied that the decision will take effect in three weeks, so that the others have time to think carefully and vaccinate their children.
