‘One small injection for a man, one giant leap for the health of us all,’ PM says after getting the Pfizer shot; adds if public cooperates, Israel could be first to end pandemic
COVID Theater is really heating up as Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu becomes the latest world leader to pretend to get vaccinated, or maybe he actually got vaccinated, but who really knows at this point? If masks work, then why the social distancing? If social distancing works, then why the masks? If masks and social distancing work, then why the lockdowns? Why do we need this insane rush to inject ourselves with an untested, unproven emergency vaccine for a virus with a 99% recovery rate? Don’t ask questions, just take your vaccine and be quiet. That’s the message here.
“Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.” Habakkuk 1:5 (KJB)
The stage has now been set for mandatory vaccinations, that’s beyond obvious at this point. Anyone who will refuse to take it will be shunned and ostracized from society, and branded as a ‘killer’ who puts other people’s lives in danger. Have you noticed no one is talking about the 2020 flu season, no one is talking about the flu shot, have you stopped to wonder why that is? Go get yourself some popcorn, and enjoy the COVID Theater, just don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s real.
Netanyahu is 1st Israeli to get COVID-19 vaccine: ‘Start of return to normal life’
FROM THE TIMES OF ISRAEL: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday night became the first Israeli to receive the coronavirus vaccine, getting the shot on live television and setting off the nation’s ambitious COVID-19 vaccination campaign, hailing the occasion as a “very great day” for Israel.
“One small injection for a man and one giant leap for the health of us all,” Netanyahu, 71, quipped from Sheba Medical Center in Ramat Gan, paraphrasing astronaut Neil Armstrong’s famous words after landing on the moon.
Riffing on the theme of the Hanukkah holiday that just ended, he added: “We are leaving the darkness of the coronavirus, at the start of the journey to a great light.” He said he hoped Israel could be the first country to beat the COVID-19 pandemic if people get vaccinated.
“If everyone cooperates, keeps the rules and goes to get vaccinated, we’ll get out of this and we could well be the first country in the world to emerge from this pandemic. Let’s do it together,” he said.
Health Minister Yuli Edelstein was also vaccinated moments later. After receiving his shot, Netanyahu was placed in observation for half an hour to monitor for possible allergic reactions, which have been reported in a few very rare cases.

Netanyahu pledged that millions of doses of Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine will arrive by the end of the month and urged all Israelis to be vaccinated.
“I asked to be first to be vaccinated, along with Health Minister Yuli Edelstein, to serve as a personal example and encourage you to get vaccinated,” he said. “Go get vaccinated.”
He said that the return to life as we used to know it begins now. For all those who have been unable “to hug grandpa and grandma,” for all those whose businesses have been closed, “who haven’t been able to go to restaurants or the gym, or to watch soccer or basketball,” the vaccine drive means Israel can start “to reopen, to return to what it was… to normal life. It starts here.”
Netanyahu and Edelstein must each receive a booster shot in three weeks for optimal protection from the novel coronavirus. In the meantime, Netanyahu urged Israelis to continue to follow the health restrictions: social distancing, frequent hand-washing, and wearing masks.
Asked by a reporter in English if he was nervous to get the shot, he laughed and said: “No, no, I wasn’t nervous. I thought it was important to set a personal example so that all Israelis would go and vaccinate themselves.”
Netanyahu said he felt “terrific” after the shot, and Edelstein said he too felt fine.
“I haven’t grown a tail,” the health minister said wryly, referencing the avalanche of “fake news” concerning the vaccine’s safety.
As Netanyahu was being vaccinated, some 300 people protested outside as part of weekly Saturday night demonstrations against the prime minister.
“The guy’s come to get vaccinated as if he’s going to be our salvation,” one protester told Channel 12. “He’s come here to do his show, his spin… the personal example of a man suspected of briber, criminality and breach of trust is pathetic and unneeded.”
Netanyahu’s vaccination made him one of the first world leaders to receive the inoculation.
US Vice President Mike Pence got the shot live on television Friday, while President-elect Joe Biden is set to receive his shot on Monday. President Trump has made it clear he is not planning to take the vaccine imminently, citing the belief that his recovery from a brief but severe bout of COVID-19 has given him immunity. READ MORE
