HMO says 0.01% of those who got 2nd vaccine dose have contracted virus

Maccabi, Israel’s second-largest health provider, says that of the 128,000 people who received the second dose of the coronavirus vaccine through its clinics at least a week ago, only 20, or 0.01%, have contracted the coronavirus.

None of the patients were hospitalized and they mostly experienced a mild illness, according to Maccabi.

Meanwhile, Channel 12 news reports that two residents of an old-age home in Holon have tested positive 12 days after getting the second shot.
