Foreign media reported that Israel has decided to administer a fourth dose in addition to the booster vaccine to protect against the ‘Covid 19’ epidemic.
According to the Israeli health department, the fourth vaccine is currently only recommended for adults over the age of 60 and those with non -communicable diseases, as well as medical staff members, including doctors.
Israeli Prime Minister Naphtali Bennett has informed the Israeli people that the health sector has recommended a fourth vaccine.
Most of the Israelis received the ‘Pfizer’ vaccine.
As the ‘Covid 19’ epidemic re-emerged in Israel after the first and second doses, the Israeli health sector was keen to offer a third booster last August, based on Pfizer’s recommendations and its own clinical studies.
Accordingly, Israel was the first country in the world to launch the booster vaccine.
At that time, the number of ‘Covid 19’ infections in Israel had started to increase again due to the ‘Delta’ mutation.
After Israel launched the ‘booster’ vaccine, other countries followed suit. After Israel, booster vaccines were introduced in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.
Now, the Israeli health department has decided to give another ‘Pfizer’ vaccine as a fourth dose to adults over the age of 60 suffering from non-communicable diseases, taking into account the ‘Omicron’ mutation.
Omicron infections have also been reported in Israeli society.
