More than half of Israel's population or about 5.3 million people have been vaccinated against the coronavirus disease.
Herd immunity, which begins when about 65 to 70 per cent of the population is considered protected against Covid-19, breaking links of transmission.
The country, which was one of the first to attempt to vaccinate its entire population, also additionally has a further 830,000 people harbouring natural immunity due to being infected in the past.
Combined, this means that 68 per cent of the country is now protected from the disease, which is above the threshold of herd immunity.
Distribution of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine in Israel began in December 2020.
