Israel says 3rd Pfizer dose 86% effective

Israeli Health Maintenance Organisation (HMO) Maccabi said on Wednesday that a study showed the third dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is 86% effective in people aged over 60.

"The triple dose is the solution to curbing the current infection outbreak," Dr. Anat Ekka Zohar stated.

Last month, Israel decided to offer older citizens the third dose of the vaccine after the country saw a spike in coronavirus cases despite a high vaccination rate.
