Susan and I tried to get vaccinated against the coronavirus as soon as Maccabi – our Health Fund – told us we were eligible. After a false start when only Tel Aviv was on offer as a place to be inoculated, we secured a slot in Petach Tikva. (Much more convnient.)
How was it? Great. We turned up and in the time it took the front office guy to print us out a ticket for the (non-existent) queue, slots opened up for us and were duly inoculated. In and out in ten minutes or so. Quite an impressive performance by Maccabi.
One witticism doing the rounds gives you a bit of a peek into current Israeli life: can we please get whoever is organizing the vaccinations to be put in charge of the post office?
