The Ministry of Health has recommended the COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11 in most cases including children who have recovered from the virus.

The vote was 73 to 2 on a special committee established by the Ministry of Health.

The decision was announced on prime time news on Wednesday.

Israel had held out for several weeks in giving a recommendation for the roll out of the vaccine for children in this age group.
