Adolescents to be Given COVID-19 Vaccine

Israel announced it’s planning to inoculate adolescents aged 12-15 once Pfizer receives emergency use from the FDA in the States. Up to now, Israel has given the shot to people aged 16 and up. Pfizer reported that their COVID-19 vaccine was safe and effective, producing robust antibody responses in 12- to 15-year olds. This could help open up middle schools completely, which until now, have operated two to three days a week on campus, and the rest of the days via virtual learning. Please pray for wisdom for Israelis as they seek whether or not to vaccinate their adolescent children. Please also pray for more complete data on the safety of the vaccine in this age group. Lastly, please pray that if the vaccine is proven safe for adolescents, that it will help Israel to further emerge from the pandemic.
