Changes introduced in Israel require a third dose of the preparation six months after receiving the previous vaccinations.
The document will be valid for six months after the end of one week after receiving the last required vaccination. This means that for people who have been vaccinated with two doses, the passport will be valid for six months from the date of receiving the second dose of the preparation.
Israeli Ministry of Health figures show that more than 4.7 million Israelis have received at least two doses of the vaccine, but only 3.2 million – which is a boost for the third dose.
People with a negative test result may be granted a temporary passport, however, those willing to test must pay.
The Israeli government has also announced that patients who have contracted the coronavirus will be required to take the vaccine in order to obtain a COVID passport. Previously, all convalescents were eligible for a document.
Israel, the first country to offer a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, launched a campaign to boost the effect of previously provided doses in early August. Initially, it was available to people over 60 years old, and now for the third time all volunteers over 12 years old are vaccinated.
