Knesset passes legislation that lets cities get info on unvaccinated residents

The Knesset gives final approval to controversial legislation allowing the Health Ministry to give local authorities personal details of residents who have not been vaccinated against the coronavirus.

The proposal is passed into law in its second and third readings.

The country’s public health union has warned against the legislation, saying it will cause damage due to privacy concerns.

Details of those who are fully vaccinated will not be given to the local authorities.
