Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has announced he expects the vaccination of the country’s children to begin by the end of 2021.

Israel is currently leading the world in vaccinating its adult population with more than 60% of the population having received one dose and 56% having received two.

But vaccinating children is much more complicated than overcoming any fear they may have over injections. It throws up issues of science and ethics and at the heart is the question, why?
