Israel 1st Country Worldwide to Vaccinate All Elderly Care Centers
Magen David Adom reported today (Thursday) that it has completed the first round of vaccinations in all elderly care facilities and sheltered accommodation nationwide, making Israel the first country in the world to carry out the first phase of the nationwide vaccination program. Next week, the second round of vaccinations is set to begin, with elderly residents and employees receiving their second and final dose.
The Corona vaccination drive targeting the country's elderly population was launched about 10 days ago. Since then, the vaccine has been administered to approximately 150,000 residents and employees of elderly care facilities and sheltered accommodation.
MDA teams with extensive experience treating elderly citizens underwent special training in preparation for the drive as part of the "Magen Avot Ve'imahot" program, allowing them to provide high-quality, fast, and highly professional treatment. (JPost / VFI News)
