Also participating in the visit at the Leumit Health Care Services vaccination facility in Jerusalem were Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion, Leumit Chairman Yaakov Edri and Leumit CEO Haim Fernandes.

Prime Minister Netanyahu said: “I would like to appeal from here to the 570,000 people over 50 who have yet to be vaccinated. Almost 100% of the deaths and severe cases are concentrated in this group.

When you do not go to be vaccinated because of this small jab, which is insignificant, in the worst case the side effects are a few hours’ discomfort – you take upon yourselves the risks of death and severe illness with effects that could be for life.

The first reason to go be vaccinated is the danger of not being vaccinated which is far greater than the slight discomfort of the jab of the vaccination.

The second reason to go be vaccinated is that we are now opening the Green Passport plan. Whoever has been vaccinated will be able to go and enjoy the theatre, the cinema, sports events, flights abroad, restaurants and more.

The third reason is even more important: Not only are you saving yourselves, if you do not go to be vaccinated then many of you will become very sick and you will be a challenge for our hospitals and then we will be compelled to impose a new lockdown.

Then it is worthwhile to preserve life and allow all of us to get back to life; go be vaccinated. Please, do so now and we will exit from the coronavirus, not with the Green Passport or any other passport. We can completely exit if 570,000 people will go be vaccinated. Go be vaccinated. That is my message.”
