Israel has officially banned any vaccinated tourists from entering the country.
Health Ministry Director-General Prof. Nachman Ash said the country planned to allow vaccinated tourists to enter the country by August 1st but that plan has changed now.
The announcement of banning vaccinated tourists coming into the country comes just days after Prime Minister Naftali Bennett stated that the Pfizer vaccine is “significantly less effective” against the Delta variant.
The Prime Minster’s statement came after researches from Hebrew University discovered that large amounts of people who were already vaccinated with the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine ended up becoming infected with Covid-19 even after being fully vaccinated.
