A prominent member of the Committee for Prioritizing COVID-19 Vaccine in Israel has resigned in protest against the decision to recommend vaccinations for pregnant women.
Professor Eran Dolev has resigned from the Israeli Ministry of Health’s Vaccine Priority Setting Committee due to the committee’s recommendation that pregnant women receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Dolev, the former head of the ethics board at the Israel Medical Association, left his post because the committee ignored his warnings about testing vaccines on pregnant women with limited studies available.
“A vaccine like this has not been tested by any company and has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration,” Dolev stated In reference to the COVID-19 vaccine. In fact, Dolev is correct that vaccines are only licensed by the US Food and Drug Administration under an “emergency use license,” not the complete approval process for drugs that would normally have to go through before approval for general use.
In a phone interview with Keshet 12 News, Dolev stated that when the committee rejected his opinion that pregnant women should not be vaccinated, he encouraged the committee to sign pregnant women a “informed consent form.” This proposal was also rejected by the Vaccine Priority Committee.
Professor Eran Dolev explains his resignation from the Corona Vaccine Development Committee – “… I said that pregnant women should not be vaccinated, as no company has tested this … My position has been rejected … I said at least get them to sign an informed consent form … rejected ” https://t.co/pxPluvWnYy

Dolev’s comments come on the heels of reports that pregnant women who are being vaccinated may pass on protection to their babies. Reuters mentioned That according to new research conducted in February, antibodies were detected in all 20 women who took doses of the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine during the last trimester of pregnancy and in their newborns. The research was conducted by Hadassah – University Medical Center in Jerusalem.
“Our findings highlight that vaccinating pregnant women may provide protection for mothers and newborns from SARS-CoV-2 infection,” The study said. However, the researchers note the small size of the study. Additionally, the study was not officially published or peer-reviewed.
As Israel debates whether or not pregnant women should be vaccinated, the country is already moving in a controversial direction through its new “Green Corridor” program. Under this initiative, only citizens who received the COVID-19 vaccine will be given access to gyms, hotels, swimming pools, concerts, and places of worship. Restaurants and bars will be included at the end as well. Green Pass comes in the form of a digital app with a QR code that must be scanned to prove the immunization status.
This is how the first stage in returning to your near-normal life will look like, Minister of Health, Yuli Edelstein, To Reuters.
