Facing a sharp falloff in the number of people applying for covid vaccinations, some Israeli companies will soon allow their premises to be used for administering the shots, Globes reported on Thursday.

The “jab on the job’ campaign” is a joint effort by the Manufacturers Association, Ministry of Health, IDF Home Front and Magen David Adom (MDA), which will be sending mobile units to places of employment.

Among the first companies to lend a hand – or an arm -are HP Israel, Osem Nestle, Flex, SodaStream, Unilever and Elbit Systems.

Maccabi Health Services said it plans to offer vaccinations starting next week at Israel Aerospace Industries, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, Isracard, Shufersal and Direct Insurance.
