December 31, 2020 - Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality and Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center (Ichilov Hospital) are opening a large vaccination center today (December 31) in Rabin Square.
The center will include 20 vaccination stations, which will be operated by the hospital's nursing staff. Registration for vaccinations at the center is open to all Israeli residents aged 60 or above.
The appointment system for the new center can be found here (Hebrew):
The center will operate Sunday-Thursday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., and on Friday from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. Vaccinations will be administered according to guidelines set by the Ministry of Health. Opening the center on Saturday will be considered at a later date.
Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality has been operating a COVID-19 testing site at Rabin Square for several months in partnership with IDF Home Front Command, providing over 1,500 tests per day. This center is expected to continue operations alongside the vaccination center.
Ron Huldai, Mayor of Tel Aviv-Yafo: "Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 crisis, the municipality has been mobilized to protect the health of residents and to maintain a routine alongside the coronavirus. We established a municipal COVID-19 command center, an epidemiological investigation center with over 100 investigators, mobile testing sites in neighborhoods, and now a huge vaccination center in partnership with Ichilov. We will continue to stand at the forefront of the fight, for the benefit of the city's residents and for all of the country's citizens."
Prof. Ronni Gamzu, CEO of Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center: "With entry into a third lockdown, it is clear to us all that our main goal now is only to deal with mass vaccinations for COVID-19 and to vaccinate as many citizens as possible. Ichilov Hospital has been undertaking this huge operation for a week and is proving to have great capabilities, and now thanks to the devotion of Mayor Ron Huldai - who immediately enlisted for the cause - we will start vaccinating the masses non-stop, thousands of individuals every day in the huge site that we are setting up with the municipality and all for one purpose - to finally eradicate COVID-19."
