Representing Azrieli Group against MOH Plan to Mark Vaccinated People with Bracelets in Malls

As part of a new wave of COVID-19 restrictions, the Israeli Ministry of Health sought to implement a plan to mark vaccinated people with bracelets in all malls and shopping centers, thereby allowing them to walk freely around such complexes (as opposed to unvaccinated people). The Azrieli Group, through Advs. Zohar Lande, Eran Winner, Anat Even-Chen, Ido Vakshi, and Gaya Tsarfati, sent an urgent appeal to the Prime Minister, the Ministers of Health, Economy and Industry, and Justice, and the Attorney General. In the appeal, we argued that the plan is “discriminatory, offensive, unreasonable, and disproportionate.” In light of the criticism, the Prime Minister and the Minister of Health have decided to walk back the bracelet plan and not include it in the government vote for implementing the Green Pass in malls.
