On December 28, Prof. Shai Feldman, president of Sapir Academic College, joined the nationwide vaccination drive, receiving his own COVID-19 inoculation. Israel has launched an unprecedented campaign to vaccinate more than 150,000 people per day. By the end of the first week, a million Israelis were inoculated.
The whole effort, Feldman believes, is an example of Israel’s public health system at its best, and an outstanding demonstration of social resilience. “Sapir is gearing up to return to full activity when the health crisis subsides. We look forward to seeing thousands of students and faculty returning to Sapir's campus and are eager to once again welcome our partners from Israel and around the world.”
