According to the new data by Israel the health officials distributed the Coronavirus Vaccines from Pfizer Inc and partner BioNTech SE, assuming that this will protect the unvaccinated children around them. By January 30 one third of Maccabi Healthcare Services’ 1.95 million members above the age of 16 had received at least a single Vaccine dose. Analyzing the outcome in 223 communities, researchers found that the number of vaccinated adults went up and the infection rates among unvaccinated Maccabi Healthcare members in the same community went down especially among children.
Israel has administered two doses of Coronavirus Vaccine to more than half its population. The health officials also said 50.07% of the overall population – or 72.5% of the eligible population – had received both vaccine doses, while 55.96% of the overall population have received the first dose. According to data scientist, Eran Segal of Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science Israel has seen an 85% drop in daily COVID-19 deaths, a 72% decrease in the critically ill, and 86% fewer daily cases since the pandemic’s third peak in mid-January. Distribution of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine in Israel began in December, with eligibility extended to citizens and residents over the age of 16 which was some 69% of the 9.3 million population. People are deemed fully protected a week after receiving the second shot.
