At the end of the first official day of the corona vaccine campaign in the third dose, about 38,000 people aged 60 and over have been vaccinated so far.

An additional 219,000 people have made an appointment for the next few days at the four health funds, with 1.5 million citizens over the age of 60 eligible for the third vaccine dose.



At Clalit Health Fund, about 11,000 adults arrived today to be vaccinated, and another 100,000 people have already made an appointment for the next few days.

At Maccabi, we vaccinated about 7,100 people aged 60 and over, and about 55,000 made an appointment to get vaccinated in the third dose.

Clalit has more than 700,000 people aged 60 and over who are entitled to the third vaccine dose.

In order to meet the high demand, Clalit will develop vaccine complexes outside clinics around the country in the next two days, similar to those that operated at the height of the vaccination campaign.



Among the vaccinators who came to the Clalit clinic in Jerusalem was Mordechai Levin, 97, who came to receive the third dose of vaccine accompanied by his son-in-law.

Two generations of vaccinators entitled to the third dose also came to the branch: Sasson Levy came to get vaccinated with his parents, Esther and Saturn, and said that he "trusts the staff with his eyes closed. It is important to receive the third vaccine, I have children and older parents. ".

There was also a high response to the resumption of vaccinations in nursing homes. Doron Arnon, CEO of the Mediterranean Towers Sheltered Housing Network revealed that “the vast majority have come to get vaccinated in a third dose, there are individuals who cannot physically and there are those who currently do not want to get vaccinated. The war is to continue the routine of activity. If for the first time it was a celebration that they found a vaccine, now they understand that it might be a routine of life. "



Arnon described how the network works to keep the residents staying in the nursing homes." Only vaccinated and recovering people enter here. Grandchildren who cannot be vaccinated should bring a negative test close to the visit. We keep the tenants as close as possible. "



Shoshana Sheild, 76, encourages giving the third dose." I recommend everyone to get vaccinated and believe that with the help of the vaccine we will defeat the epidemic. "I am not worried that there is no FDA approval, and I am actually glad that Israel took the responsibility and chose to go ahead."

Tzipi Levy, 80, also trusts the recommendations of the Ministry of Health's expert team.

"I am very pleased with the decision of the Ministry of Health because it is the same dose. The professionals have informed us that our antibodies are declining. At our age waiting a few more weeks or months can be dramatic. It is our personal and public responsibility at our age to receive the third dose. "But we have experts in the country. Our tenants act responsibly and cooperate. There is a response even though they did not force anyone. Children are not brought in here, but we go to them because responsibility must be shown. This is what mutual guarantee looks like and I am proud of our people."



Nissim and Dalia Mendim, Holocaust survivors aged 90 and 86, married for 66 years, went to get vaccinated together.

"The things that were put on us in the concentration camps were meant to kill us, now they are trying to keep us alive. We are happy that they are thinking of us first, it is something they are not used to in all countries."
