Free Pfizer vaccines were provided to around 30,000 Filipino caregivers, 400 Agriculture students, and the staff of the Philippine embassy in Israel. Even Filipinos with expired working permits have received free vaccine shots.
“Israel is thankful for the Filipino caregivers for helping the elderly and the disabled Israeli citizens during the COVID-19 outbreak. For many years, the Israeli government has been providing the Filipino caregivers with full access to the advanced medical services of our country. The free access to COVID-19 vaccine is another way of thanking them and ensuring their health and safety.”
