Israeli Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz admitted that the so-called Green Pass vaccination record system in Israel is primarily about compelling skeptical people to vaccinate. Little did he know that it was broadcast live on a television station.
Israeli Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz said Sunday before the weekly meeting of the Israeli Cabinet that the introduction of green pass regulations for certain venues was only necessary to force the public to get vaccinated, and not for medical reasons.

Horowitz was caught saying this on the microphone to Israeli Interior Minister Ajelet Schaked, who also did not know that the conversation had already been recorded and broadcast live on television, like Jewish News Syndicate reported. Schaked told Horowitz that the green pass could be abolished as a requirement for al fresco dining in restaurants, to which Horowitz replied that the green pass could be abolished not only as a requirement for al fresco dining but also “for swimming pools , not just in restaurants “. Horowitz continued:
“Epidemiologically, it is true (…) that our problem is the people who do not get vaccinated. We have to (influence) them a little, otherwise we will not get out of there (from this pandemic situation).”
Horowitz went on to claim that any exception to the green pass system, which has “some kind of universality”, would result in the passport’s scientific validity being called into question. Horowitz also admitted that the Green Pass system is still not used at most of the venues. According to Horowitz:
“There is some kind of universality to the Green Pass system, except in shopping malls where I think it should be introduced because it is now clear that it is not being used anywhere.”
Israel was the first country in the world to issue a vaccination certificate, which it abolished in June of this year. However, after another wave of coronavirus infections in the country – although the majority of the Israeli population is already fully vaccinated – the passport was reintroduced and has been a requirement for access to restaurants, swimming pools, all covered entertainment facilities and all public areas since August 20 Squares, with the exception of parks.
Children under the age of twelve who are not vaccinated must have regular coronavirus tests if they want to enter these facilities. However, as Horowitz found out, most institutions do not use the pass.
