Israel to offer 4th vaccine dose to those over 60

The Israeli Health Ministry's panel of experts announced it has recommended giving the fourth dose of a vaccine against COVID-19 to people aged 60 and more.

"This is wonderful news that will assist us in getting through the Omicron wave that is engulfing the world," Prime Minister Naftali Bennett commented on the decision. "The citizens of Israel were the first in the world to receive the third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and we are continuing to pioneer with the fourth dose as well."

The decision is now awaiting full approval from the country's health authorities. Israel has so far reported 340 cases of the new strain of coronavirus, Omicron.
