No more mercury thermometers on the shelves

On 4-May-14, in accordance with Medical Administration Circular 23/2013, the Pharmaceutical Administration of the Ministry of Health directed pharmacies and Medications Rooms (in HMOs, health institutions, pharmacy chains and private pharmacies) to refrain from selling mercury thermometers in pharmacies, starting from 1-Jan-15.

Thermometers that do not contain mercury and are suitable for use on Shabbat and Yom Tov can be purchase in pharmacies (Jewish law does not allow the use of digital thermometers on Shabbat and Yom Tov ).

The Ministries of Health and of Environmental Protection are currently seeking an appropriate solution for the collection of old thermometers.
