More than 4.3 million Israelis (48% of the population) have received at least one dose of the vaccine, including 2.9 million (32%) the second. In this context, Israel is continuing its third deconfinement, with the reopening to all of shopping malls, non-essential shops, markets, museums and libraries. On the other hand, sports halls, swimming pools, amusement parks and hotels are only accessible to holders of vaccine passports. The green passport is available one week after the second dose on the website or the application of the Ministry of Health. It is then sent online or by post.
Yaaron, 66, was able to find his treadmill in the room of his club, in Ramat Gan, in the suburbs of Tel Aviv. He shows his vaccination certificate:“There is my full name, my ID number, my date of birth, the date of the first and second dose and also the barcode. Tomorrow I will load the app to have it on my phone. , and it will be good to go everywhere “, he explains.
This green passport may not be the best solution, but it is the only one, says Karen Shtevi, CEO of the sports club: “It’s a very exciting day for the fitness industry in Israel. I feel like a bride! It was a disaster, people were just sitting at home, they were getting fat, they were getting depressed and we were not earning anything. !, she explains. The problem is people opposed to the green passport, they cannot come to the club. But it’s not my fault. They just have to go to court or to the government. “
At the edge of the club pool, Daniela said to herself “so happy to swim again and enjoy the healthy life like before the coronavirus”. She pleads for the green passport: “Freedom is lived in good health. I don’t believe that anyone wants to be free in a sick world”, she believes.
The making or presentation of a false green passport will be punishable by prison.
