Nearly five million doses of the coronavirus vaccine have been administered in Israel as of now, Health Minister Yuli Edelstein (Likud) announced Tuesday morning.

Thus far, a total of 4,989,925 doses of the COVID vaccine have been administered since Israel’s mass vaccination campaign was launched in December.

Of those, 3,165,000 doses were given as a first dose, with 1,824,525 Israelis having received both doses of the two-dose vaccine.

Edelstein announced that nearly 117,000 doses were administered Monday.

"Almost 5 million doses of the coronavirus vaccine have been administered thus far."

"We will defeat the virus because we have the best vaccination program anywhere - but the mutations have forced us to extend the lockdown for a little longer. I know this is not easy but we must do it," he stated.

A total of 34.35% of Israelis have received the first dose of the vaccine, with 19.80% having received the first and second doses.
