The directive came a day after Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz announced the move on Sunday, saying the Ministry is looking into the possibility of allowing the general public to receive booster shots, according to the Xinhua news agency.
The move followed Pfizer’s request to US and European regulators for approval of a booster dose of its vaccine.
The ministry has reported a steady increase in the number of infections as a result of the Delta variant’s spread.
On Sunday, 423 new cases were identified throughout Israel.
Approximately 61 percent of the country’s 9.3 million citizens have received at least one dose of vaccination, and approximately 55 percent have received two doses.
The Pfizer vaccine was given to the majority of them.
