Former Director of the Biological Institute: "I was physically injured by the corona vaccine - need a commission of inquiry" | Israel today


Prof. Shmuel Shapira announced in a Twitter post that he will fight for the disclosure of the truth • In the Ministry of Health attacked: "This is not the way to cover up his managerial failure"

Does the director of the Biological Institute in Ness Ziona raise questions about the corona vaccine in which most of the country's citizens were vaccinated?

According to a tweet posted by Professor Shmuel Shapira on the social network Twitter: "I received 3 vaccines, I was physically injured in a very significant way as many others were injured, and in addition my confidence in the quality of decisions and processes was severely scorched. No one asked and checked. For all the decisions and not just in relation to the vaccine. "

It is important to note that Prof. Shapira managed the biological institute between the years 2013-2021 and headed the institute during the period of development attempts of the Israeli vaccine against the corona virus.

Against this background, one of the respondents to the tweet wrote that it is possible that the opposition to Prof. Shapira was created as a result of the failure of the institute he headed. 

"You forgot to write a proper disclosure, that in your previous position, as director of the Institute for Biological Research, you led the development of the Israeli vaccine to Corona - whose development has not yet been completed. Maybe this is why you are against the vaccine? ", The surfer wrote that hinted that Prof. Shapira's positions are biased and stem from the fact that in the end the state decided not to wait for the vaccine developed by the Biological Institute.

In response, Prof. Shapira claimed that "everyone knows where I am and who I am, and therefore asks a committee of inquiry so that everyone can open the cards. My previous positions and my good citizenship require me not to be silent."

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health also responded to Prof. Shapira and wrote that "we were surprised to hear the unfounded remarks of the former director of the Biological Institute, Prof. Shmuel Shapira. It should be emphasized that vaccines given to the public in Israel have proven effective and safe." "We reiterate our recommendation to the public to get ahead and get vaccinated in order to protect health and life! In addition, it is unfortunate and shameful that Prof. Shapira's reference to the processes of development and testing of the Biological Institute's vaccine."

The Ministry of Health added that "like everyone else, we hope for the success of the trial, but to date the official results of the trial process supporting the effectiveness of the vaccine have not yet been completed, unlike other vaccines that allow the declaration of success. "Former director of the institute, Prof. Shapira. Vaccine development is a complex theory and the road is difficult and full of difficulties. Anyone who does not have the necessary experience, knowledge and understanding must make an account with himself and not with the ministry responsible for public health."
