Israel passed a law allowing the government to share the identities of people who are not vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus. The director-general of the education ministry and welfare ministry has the right to receive the names, addresses and phone numbers of unvaccinated citizens.
While passing the law, Israeli officials asked, “Is privacy more important than life itself?
Israel is trying to vaccinate its 9 million citizens with Pfizer/BionTech experimental vaccine. The country has restricted its citizens from using services such as gyms and indoor dining unless they provide proof of vaccination.
The right to the privacy of medical information is a concern for many.
