Israel makes 3rd booster shot mandatory to enter public venues…

Israel has begun enforcing its ‘Green Pass’ restrictions, which restrict entry to various public venues to people who have received a third Covid-19 booster shot.

The implementation of the Green Pass, which is part of the Israeli government’s plan to combat the coronavirus, began on Sunday after a more than two-week delay, according to the Xinhua news agency.

To be considered fully vaccinated and eligible for the Green Pass, a person will need to receive a third dose of the coronavirus vaccine, according to the new guidelines.

People who have recently recovered from illness or injury are also eligible.

The Green Pass is a six-month barcode that grants access to a variety of venues, including restaurants, cafes, bars, cultural and sporting events, cinemas, weddings, gyms, conferences, and hotels.

To comply with the new rules, these establishments must now scan QR codes before allowing entry.
