Israel’s Coronavirus Plague Team Recommends Fourth Shot for Elderly and Medical Workers

The Pandemic Response team ruled on Tuesday night that anyone over the age of 60 and medical workers could receive a fourth shot of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine, the Health Ministry said.
The shot will be available four months after receiving the third dose.
In a statement, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett praised the committee for the move, which he said will “help us overcome the Omicron wave that is sweeping the world.”
He noted that Israel was the first in the world to provide a third shot and will lead in giving the fourth shot too.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention already provides a fourth shot to immunocompromised people. In October, the CDC updated its guidelines saying that moderately or severely immunocompromised people who receive three shots as their primary dose can receive a booster dose, too, for a total of four COVID-19 vaccine doses.
