Rav Shteinman says to inoculate your kids based on doctors professional opinion

The Ministry of Health has been on a campaign to inoculate children born after January 1, 2004 for the polio virus with a weakened-virus oral inoculation.

They say it is very important to get the relevant children inoculated.

Visiting Bnei Braq today, Minister of Health Yael German mentioned that the percentages are low in the haredi community of inoculations, and she said people are less aware of the need and in a city with so many children and so many children who are not given vaccinations it is so important that they get this polio vaccination.

And here is what I wanted to point out - Rav Shteinman was asked what he thinks about the necessity of getting inoculated. According to Kikar, Rav Shteinman's responses was that people should get their kids inoculated, and the ability to heal was given to the doctors, so it is very important to heed the instructions of the doctors - if they say to inoculate, you should do so. While it is brought down that people with great faith do not need to get involved in medicine, that only applies to someone with a level of faith that is practically not present today among anybody, so we are all obligated by the passuk of "ורפא ירפא".
