Israel will begin vaccinating people who recovered from COVID-19 at least three months ago, the country’s Health Ministry said on Monday.

Israel’s rapid COVID-19 vaccine rollout has produced some of the most detailed data so far on the impact of inoculations on the pandemic.

More than half the country’s population of nine million has received a single dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, and about 3.4 million of them have received two shots. Studies have shown the shot to be highly effective.
