In Israel, all Filipinos have been properly vaccinated.

According to Israel’s envoy to Manila, all Filipinos living in Israel have been properly vaccinated against the coronavirus illness 2019 (Covid-19) and have free access to booster doses.

Ambassador Ilan Fluss stated boosters are still “freely available” to Filipinos in a Laging Handa briefing, emphasizing their relevance, particularly for the elderly.

“All Filipinos in Israel — caregivers, diplomats, and other Filipinos — have been completely vaccinated, and receiving their immunization is not a problem,” Fluss added.

According to him, around 6.5 million people out of Israel’s total population of 9.3 million have received their first dose, with 6 million receiving their second dose and 4.2 million receiving a booster shot.

“The younger generation is not rushing to get vaccinated, especially not for the booster,” Fluss explained, “so we have less than 50% who have gotten the booster so far.”

According to him, the Israeli government is considering providing a “fourth dose” of the Covid-19 vaccination to its citizens.

“The fourth booster is being seriously considered, but as I have stated, there is insufficient medical evidence on what will happen if the fourth booster is given.” So it’s still being looked into, but it appears to me that this is the way to go,” Fluss added.

According to him, the country has roughly 1,118 instances confirmed to be contaminated with the Omicron variant, with 723 of them coming from outside the country.

“We have another 861 questionable cases where we feel it could be Omicron, but we’re still sequencing to see if it’s the Omicron.” As a result, the protocols in Israel have become a little bit more stringent,” Fluss explained.

This, he claims, is one of the reasons Israel remains closed to outsiders, as well as the introduction of harsher procedures prohibiting Israelis from traveling to the approximately 70 nations on its “red” list.
