New Green Pass rules are due to take effect tomorrow, with many Israelis set to lose their passes under the updated immunity guidelines.

Under the new rules, anyone can receive a Green Pass a week after getting a coronavirus booster shot. Those who have received two vaccine doses will have their Green Pass for six months after getting the second shot.

Any person who had COVID will also have a Green Pass for six months after recovery, but must get a vaccine shot after that to maintain their status.

Someone who is neither vaccinated nor recovered from COVID can also submit a recent negative coronavirus test result to access venues and events that require a Green Pass.

According to Channel 12 news, some 2 million Israelis will lose their Green Pass status tomorrow due to the new requirements.
