(Worthy News) – Thousands of people in Israel got their fourth dose of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine Monday, as the country became the first in the world to begin distributing extra boosters to its elderly population and health workers.
With case numbers continuing to rise, Israel is pinning its hopes on beating back an expected Omicron-driven wave by giving an extra boost of vaccine protection to its most at risk populations. On Sunday, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett announced that all Israelis aged 60 and over and medical workers would be eligible for the shots, joining those with immunosuppression.
As of Monday evening, some 18,000 doses were administered to people who had already gotten three shots, Channel 13 news reported. Some 95,000 people signed up for appointments to get a fourth shot over the course of the day, according to Channel 12. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More…) ]
