Two weeks after Israel launched the coronavirus vaccination operation, according to the data website “Our World in Data” founded by the team of Oxford University in the United Kingdom, nearly 15% of the people in Israel have been vaccinated, and the per capita vaccination rate is the highest in the world.
According to the Deutsche Welle on the 5th, Israeli Health Minister Edelstein said on the same day that 1.37 million Israelis have been vaccinated against the first batch of Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine.
The previous day, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu tweeted that Israel has become a “vaccination champion” compared with the countries that began vaccination in the same period last December.
According to the report, the Israeli government has obtained a second batch of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, about millions of doses.
The country’s Ministry of Health said that it had approved the vaccine developed by Modena on the 5th and is expected to start vaccination in March this year.
According to the analysis of the report, the rapid progress of vaccination in Israel depends in part on the relatively small size of the country, the adequate supply of vaccines and the country’s digital medical system.
It is reported that Israeli citizens must register for vaccination at the health maintenance organization (HMO) in the country.
At present, Israeli clinics, hospitals and temporary vaccination centers can be vaccinated almost 24 hours a day.
According to the analysis of the Associated Press, as the Israeli election approaches in March this year, Netanyahu made the country’s vaccination campaign an important part of launching a re-election offensive to show that he can lead Israel out of the epidemic crisis.
According to the report, the epidemic situation in Israel is still grim, with a cumulative death toll from the novel coronavirus of 3,445.
Health officials suggested that the third national blockade imposed at the end of December last year would be further strengthened this week.
