Prime Minister Netanyahu said: “This moment is very moving. On the way here, I thought about the children who are worrying about their parents, about the grandchildren who want to give their grandparents a real hug, about the business owners who will be able to open their businesses, restaurant-owners, gyms; we will be able to go soccer fields, to see basketball games and, of course, to reopen the country and restore it to what it was, to go back to the normal life that we desire. This starts with this action. I ask everyone to join us and be vaccinated.”

I would like to thank you, Prof. Kreiss, Dr Berkowitz and all the medical teams. I want to take this opportunity to thank a special person, Pfizer Chairman and CEO Albert Bourla, a new personal friend of mine but a huge friend of the State of Israel and a friend of all humanity. What they have done is unbelievable. What is even less of a given is that Israel is among the first countries to be vaccinating.”

After being vaccinated, Benjamin Netanyahu told Israelis: “I feel great; go get vaccinated. We are emerging from the darkness of the coronavirus into a great light. I want to again thank the Health Minister, the Ministry of Health, all of the medical crews, MDA, the volunteers, everybody.

It is precisely at this time that I ask that everybody be strict about the rules: Distance, hands, masks and avoiding gatherings. If everyone is vaccinated quicker we will thereby restore life to the normality that we knew quicker, especially the economy. We will invest more resources and efforts in order to restore what was. We need your help; it depends on all of us.

If everybody cooperates, both in strictly adhering to the rules and in being vaccinated, we will emerge from this and it is very likely that Israel will be the first country in the world to do so.”

    Leading by example?
    Bibi is ignoring his own advice and not wearing a mask as he receives the vaccine from a doctor not wearing protective gloves.
