National security adviser: Central problem is 570,000 unvaccinated age 50 and up

National Security Adviser Meir Ben-Shabbat tells the coronavirus cabinet that Israel’s central problem at the moment is the fact that some 570,000 people age 50 and over have not yet been vaccinated, the Ynet news site reports.

Ben-Shabbat says local authorities should be given data on who has not vaccinated so they can make efforts to get those people inoculated. The attorney general says there are privacy concerns in such a course of action.
