Israel’s dilemma. Can unvaccinated people return to work?

After spending most of last year behind closed doors, Tel Aviv make-up artist Artyom Kavnatsky was ready to return to work. But when he showed up at a recent photo shoot, his employer turned him around. Reason? He was not vaccinated against the coronavirus.

“He did not take me because I was not vaccinated,” Kavnatsky said. “It is discrimination, everything is not right.”

Israel’s rapid vaccination rate has made it one of the few countries that can return to most of its pre-epidemic regime. Bars և businesses, hotels and health clubs have been given a whole new life in Israel, where 80% of the adult population is fully vaccinated, և new infections և COVID-19 mortality has fallen.

Although in Israel there is a hint of what is possible in case of a high level of immunization, it also offers an idea of ​​the forthcoming problems. Workplaces and schools are now struggling with what to do with those who refuse to be vaccinated as the next stage of the epidemic. Again, public health concerns run counter to individual rights և probably new issues of justice. One case is already in court, the others are expected.
