Waning immunity in Israel as infections rise five months after 75% of adults fully vaccinated

Posted on Aug 18, 2021

A timeline of confirmed cases in Israel shows rapidly rising infections five months after the country fully vaccinated 75% of its population.

Despite Israel’s successful vaccination campaign and the beginning of booster shots to people over 60 years old, Israel is now registering more than 5,000 cases per day.

The Delta variant is responsible for 99% of these cases and due to its high transmissibility, is causing breakthrough infections within the fully vaccinated population.

The data supports recommendations for booster jabs within six months of being fully vaccinated.
