The rollout of vaccinations for five to 11-year-olds this week aims to curb a recent rise in coronavirus infections in Israel.

Israel started rolling out Pfizer/BioNtech COVID-19 vaccinations for five to 11-year-olds on Monday, hoping to beat down a recent rise in coronavirus infections.

A fourth wave of infections that hit Israel in June began subsiding in September. But over the past two weeks th reproduction rate of the virus, which had remained below one for two months, began climbing and has now crossed a threshold indicating the virus could again be spreading exponentially.
