Prime Minister of Israel says: “a very important point that the public must understand, and I think that most of the people are not aware of it yet. The most vulnerable population at the moment, in a paradoxical manner – are the ones who received two doses, but not the third dose. Why? Because they walk around feeling like they are protected because they received both doses. They do not understand that the second vaccine has faded against the “Delta” – and must quickly get vaccinated with the third vaccine dose. Therefore, each one of us, including Members of Knesset Gilad Kariv and Itamar Ben-Gvir who are both young – there are many young people (vaccinated) who are seriously ill, including hospitalizations.”
