93 Israeli Doctors: Do Not Use Covid-19 Vaccine On Children

30/05/2021

93 doctors have signed a joint letter of protest calling to refrain from administering Covid-19 vaccines to children.

"We believe that not even a handful of children should be endangered through mass vaccination against a disease not dangerous to them."

In a letter, the contents of which reached Channel 12, submitted this morning, the doctors explained that "There is no room to vaccinate children at this time," and based the call on "the following values - the value of caution, the value of humility", as well as understanding that "haste is from the devil." They also cited "the recognition that we do not understand everything about the virus and the vaccine against it," and "the first commandment of medicine - 'First do not harm.'"

The letter includes the signatures of Dr. Amir Shachar, director of the emergency room at Laniado Hospital, Dr. Yoav Yehezkeli, an expert in internal medicine and a lecturer at Tel Aviv University, and Dr. Avi Mizrahi, director of the intensive care unit at Kaplan Hospital.
