70 percent of Israelis 16 and over vaccinated at least once


Around 70 percent of people in Israel aged 16 and over have been vaccinated against the coronavirus at least once. Almost 4.5 million Israelis have received the first vaccination and more than three million have already received the second vaccination, wrote Israeli Health Minister Juli Edelstein on Twitter on Tuesday.

Israel is a very young country and has around 9.3 million inhabitants. Of these, 6.4 million, around 70 percent are over 16 years old. The younger ones are not yet allowed to be vaccinated. Around 755,000 Israelis are considered to have recovered from corona disease.

Israel introduced the so-called Green Passport on Sunday. It allows corona vaccinated and convalescent people to go back to gyms, hotels and theaters and to attend sporting events. There was also relief for those who had not been vaccinated, including shopping centers, museums and libraries that were reopened. However, everyone is called upon to continue to adhere to the corona rules such as mask requirements and distance.

The number of infections had recently fallen steadily, but are still high. For the Jewish carnival festival of Purim, which begins on Thursday, the government is considering imposing a night curfew. According to experts, a year ago many people in Israel got infected at carnival celebrations. Health Minister Edelstein warned of “huge contagion parties” this year too.
