Israel Approves 4th Covid Vaccine Dose for People 60 and Over
Prime Minister Naftali Bennett announced that Israel would offer a fourth dose of the coronavirus vaccine to medical workers and people age 60 and above, making it the first country to broadly roll out an additional booster.
Israel started preparing for Omicron early on. This bought us time, which we’re using to our advantage. Last week, Israel began vaccinating its most vulnerable citizens with the fourth dose of the Covid vaccine. Tonight, I can announce that Israel will also begin administering the fourth vaccine to all Israelis age 60 and above, as well as our wonderful medical workers, four months after they’ve received their last dose, following the approval of Israel’s Ministry of Health. Israel will once again be pioneering the global vaccination effort. Omicron is not Delta — it’s a different ball game altogether. We must keep our eye on the ball, act swiftly and decisively if we want to continue engaging and working with an open country as much as possible throughout this pandemic.
