Following the recent surge in covid cases, Israel is offering a third dose of Pfizer’s vaccine to much of its population.

Israel was one of the first countries to implement a comprehensive vaccination program against covid-19, becoming a focus of interest for the rest of the world.

By the end of February, authorities had administered at least one dose to 50% of the population.

The country had practically returned to normal life in early June. Covid-19 cases remained low and it appeared that vaccination had won the battle against the virus.

Nevertheless, Starting in July, the cases started to increase again and at the beginning of September, more than 10,000 new cases were reported daily.
