This week, the Hillel Yaffe Medical Center began to also give vaccinations to first degree relatives above the age of 60, in accordance with the Ministry of Health guidelines. As part of this project, 75-year-old, Yehudit Kidron, and 100-year-old Holocaust survivor, Sarah Feller, came to be vaccinated on the first vaccination day together with their daughter and granddaughter, Director of the Infectious Diseases Unit at Hillel Yaffe Medical Center, Dr. Michal Stein.
Dr. Michal Stein, who is also the Chairman of the Society of Pediatric Infectious Diseases related emotionally – “This is a very moving moment for me. Together with all the senior population, my grandmother has gone through a year which has not been simple, both emotionally and physically, due to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19). The vaccination is an important and critical step in letting us return to regular daily life when we will again be able to hug our loved ones.”
