In Israel, Schools To Begin Sept 1 With On-Campus Vaccinations

Amidst the ongoing COVID-19 crisis in Israel, the coronavirus cabinet decided to go ahead with the reopening of schools in the country, with the availability of on-campus vaccinations to safeguard all students.

Despite some officials trying to delay the school reopening dates in order to prevent a further spread of the virus, the op-level coronavirus cabinet decided early Monday morning that the school year will begin as scheduled on September 1. Ministers also agreed that eligible students, aged 12 and over, will be vaccinated on campus during school hours, subject to parental approval.

Furthermore, the cabinet also decided to implement the “green pass” policy for all school faculty and staff, meaning that they will either have to be vaccinated or provide a recent negative COVID test to enter schools.

In the meantime, under the government’s back-to-school plan, more than a million students will undergo serological testing to determine if they had been infected and recovered from COVID in the past without detection. If the students are found to have antibodies, they will be granted a “green pass” and will be exempted from quarantine if someone in their class tests positive.
