Ynet reported these 100 at-risk children felt well after the jab and have shown no side effects.

All those children were at risk of becoming seriously ill with the coronavirus due to preexisting conditions or could infect at-risk family members.

Among them were children whose parents have a severe immune deficiency as cancer, diabetes, respiratory conditions, or overweight.
Their physician made the requests for exceptional vaccinations. They required approval also by the head of the Health Ministry’s coronavirus vaccination committee, Dr. Boaz Lev.
