COVID-19: Israel to administer fourth dose to its population

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett announced on Tuesday that citizens over 60 and medical staff would be entitled to a fourth dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, after consulting with a panel of experts.

“The citizens of Israel were the first in the world to receive the third dose of the Covid-19 vaccine and we continue to be at the forefront with the fourth dose,” said PM Bennett in a press release issued by its services, calling on those who meet these criteria to “go get vaccinated”.

The statement was released after a cabinet meeting on the pandemic, amid growing concerns over the spread of the Omicron variant.

“The decision of the Panel of Experts on the Pandemic to approve the fourth dose is excellent news that will help us get through the Omicron wave that is overwhelming the world,” said the prime minister.
