Israel will offer seniors a third dose of Covid-19 vaccine / Article


Israel will start offering a third dose of the vaccine to people over sixty years of age. This was announced by the Prime Minister of the country Naftali Bennett.

As a result, Israel will become the first country in the world to decide to take such a step.

Seniors who have received the second vaccine at least five months ago will be able to apply for the third vaccine. The vaccine will use a vaccine from the pharmaceutical company Pfizer, which has applied for permission to offer a third dose in the United States and the European Union.

Israel’s first Covid-19 vaccine is expected to be symbolically received by President Isaac Duke, who turns 61 in September.

At present, about two thousand people with a particularly weakened immune system in Israel, according to doctors’ recommendations, have already received a third vaccine against Covid-19, for whom it would be extremely dangerous to get the virus. None of them reported any serious side effects.

CONTEXT:

In Israel, almost 62% of the population has been vaccinated against Covid-19 so far. The country is again experiencing a rapid increase in virus infection.

The Israeli government has announced that children aged 5 to 11 can also be vaccinated against Covid-19. Until now, only children who are at least 12 years old have been vaccinated against the virus.
