Israel, which has the highest vaccination rate in the world, is now turning in to the COVID-19 capitol of the world, seriously putting in to question the effectiveness of the vaccines over time.
Their skyrocketing case rate has pushed other countries to begin placing travel restrictions on them:

Israel now has the highest current case rate in the entire world.
Oddly, Israel was also the first country to vaccinate the majority of their population and the first country to vaccinate 80% of adults. pic.twitter.com/xjJPaicQ82

The Pfizer mRNA jab efficacy at preventing infection appears to be severely waning now in Israel. The CDC claimed last week that vax efficacy at prevention infection had plummeted from 91% to 66% in America.

From The Daily Mail, “Israel is now the world’s Covid hotspot: Cases soar despite country’s trail-blazing vaccine roll-out – sparking fears other highly-vaccinated countries will be hit by another wave due to jabs’ waning immunity”:
Israel has become the Covid capital of the world despite leading the charge on vaccines, in a clear warning sign that Britain, the US and other highly-immunised nations are still vulnerable to another wave.
Stats compiled by Oxford University-backed research team Our World in Data shows there were a record 1,892 Covid cases per million people in Israel on Wednesday — nearly 0.2 per cent of the entire population in a single day.
That was significantly higher than second worst-hit Mongolia, where the rate was 1,119 per million, and double the figures for Kosovo (980), Georgia (976) and Montenegro (909), which rounded out the top five.
The figure only looks at one day’s worth of tests and Israel’s high rate is thought to have been driven up by a huge testing push ahead of schools reopening there.
But the country has consistently reported some of the highest infection rates in the world since mid-August amid an unprecedented third wave, despite being one of the most vaccinated nations in the world.
For comparison, 522 people per million in the UK tested positive yesterday and the figure was closer to 595 in the US. It suggests protection gained from vaccines is starting to buckle in the face of the highly-transmissible Delta variant.
What could possibly go wrong???
From Business Insider last week, “Pfizer’s CEO tell us why he thinks we’ll need COVID-19 vaccines every year, like flu shots”:
Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla predicted in a Wednesday interview that people will most likely need annual COVID-19 booster shots, a sign that we’ll be contending with the novel coronavirus for years to come.
Speaking with Insider by phone, Bourla acknowledged the uncertainty around his guess. But he said he believes regular vaccinations will be needed because of the potential for new variants to emerge and vaccine protection to wane over time.
“The most likely scenario is we will be needing annual re-vaccination, as we do with the flu vaccine,” Bourla said.
Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine, which was co-developed with the German biotech BioNTech, is on track to be one of the pharmaceutical industry’s best-selling drug of all time in 2021. Pfizer estimates the vaccine will generate $33.5 billion in revenue this year.
[…] Over the last few months, Pfizer and Bourla have argued that an initial booster shot would likely be needed six to 12 months after initial vaccination.
