About 1,200 men and women with disabilities and their caregivers were vaccinated for COVID-19 at the Shalva National Center in Jerusalem.
MDA and Shalva volunteers administered the COVID vaccines to people who came in from all across Israel, setting up booths throughout Shalva’s sports complex to inoculate the large group of people, report JPost.
“Persons with disabilities who were inoculated with the vaccinations can now return to normal routine.” said Shalva.
They will be able to continue rehabilitation at facilities, without worrying if about another lockdown. Treatment accessibility proved to be more difficult throughout the COVID lockdowns.
“We were honored and delighted to host this vital inoculation campaign that brings with it hope for a brighter tomorrow and reveals the light at the end of this bleak coronavirus tunnel,” said Shalva founder Kalman Samuels.
