A Bulgarian woman from Israel revealed how 200,000 people are vaccinated a day
Israel opened all restaurants, malls and gyms yesterday after reaching almost 50% of the vaccinated population. 4.5 million have been vaccinated and 2.6 million have received a second injection of the Pfizer vaccine. In January, there were periods when 200,000 people a day were vaccinated.
And the government reported a 98.5% drop in infection. All vaccinated will wear so-called “green passes”. People without them will not be admitted to gyms, for example.
Bulgarian translator Heli Mandil has lived and worked in Israel since 2006. Here is what she told Tel Aviv about the good organization that allowed Israel to vaccinate half of its 9 million population in less than two months, Maritza reported.
“I personally got vaccinated through my health insurance fund – here the health insurance funds are 4. At the moment when the vaccination of over 50-year-olds was allowed, I received an SMS with a link to book an appointment for vaccination.
I went to the appointed hour in the health insurance fund with my magnetic health card – with us everything is digitized, incl. medicines are ordered online. I was currently vaccinated.
Only Pfizer vaccines are used in Israel. They were purchased long before the start of their production.
We had neither green nor blue vaccination corridors. I have not heard of vaccination at night.
My 18-year-old daughter, who works in a cultural institution, is vaccinated through her workplace. Tel Aviv’s largest hospital, Ihilov, had organized vaccination in Rabin Square. People line up, wait their turn and get vaccinated.
There were also a number of mobile stations for crown tests (I don’t know exactly what tests were done there, but they were free and without prior order), in addition to the checkouts at the health insurance funds.
We experienced 3 very severe general quarantines, closed shops, theater and concert halls, etc. I recommend everyone not to hesitate, but to be vaccinated! ”Adds Heli Mandil.
Israel is also facing parliamentary elections, and the topic of vaccines and the opening of shops, restaurants and malls is central to the campaign.
Last year, Prime Minister Netanyahu was widely criticized for how the government reacted to the danger at the start of the pandemic that killed 5,400 Israelis.
According to the strict vaccination program approved by Benjamin Netanyahu, 95% of people between the ages of 80 and 95 have already been vaccinated.
Those over 50 are considered to be the most at-risk group, with only half a million people left without vaccines.
There is also a lot of fake news on the country’s social networks that scares people. The state of Israel has not yet invented a cure for them.
