  • Description

    The Israeli Military Command of the occupied West Bank of Jordan has announced that residents of the area travelling to Arab countries for short periods must be vaccinated against cholera.

    The measure follows the discovery of a number of cases of cholera in neighbouring countries and one confirmed case in an Arab refugee camp near Jerusalem.

    The strict health precautions have been instituted at Allenby Bridge where tens of thousand of Arabs from neighbouring countries cross over into Israel held territory during the summer months in accordance with a summer visits to relatives scheme.

    Travellers leaving the area are all being vaccinated against cholera and as from August 26 all people entering will be required to present a six-day-old International Anti-Cholera Vaccination Certificate.

    A special office of the Health Authority has been set up at Allenby Bridge and at the other major crossing point, Damya Bridge. These checkpoints are staffed by doctors and nurses to administer vaccinations and check certificates.
