In an interview with 103FM radio, MK Yisrael Beiteinu Eli Avidar stated that he does not intend to be vaccinated against Corona. Avidar. “I’m telling you I will not get vaccinated – I’m not at risk, I’m not afraid and I feel healthy – so why should I get vaccinated?
MK Yulia Malinowski also expressed suspicion in an interview on Radio 103FM when she said: “I feel that vaccines are used for political purposes.” The member of the “Israel Beiteinu” party emphasized that “this issue is too important for them to make political use of.

MK Oded Forer of Yisrael Beiteinu responded: “Vaccination is not a political or partisan question. It is a personal choice of every citizen. I intend to get vaccinated in accordance with the policy of the Ministry of Health and the priorities that will be determined according to the risk groups. “
