Dr. Avshalom Carmel of Laniado Hospital, Netanya, harshly attacked the leadership of the Israeli Ministry of Health. The reason was the plans to vaccinate children between the ages of 12 and 15.
Dr. Carmel wrote in one of his social media posts: “If this is true, Dr. Hezi Levy, I think that in a year you and those who pushed this plan to vaccinate children will be brought to trial for killing defenseless children. Resign tomorrow – that will save you the pain and humiliation of the future.”
Carmel is an orthopedist; vaccines and epidemics are not his specialty. In the past, he has spoken out harshly about methods to combat the coronavirus, and in particular about vaccinating young people and children.
Laniado Hospital issued a statement saying, “Dr. Carmel’s statements are outrageous and dangerous. We condemn in the strongest terms the attack against the Ministry of Health, which is tirelessly engaged in saving the lives of Israeli citizens in the face of a global epidemic.”
