Israel is considering a fourth dose of the vaccine. As a protection against the fifth wave

– It is not pointless to think that we will need fourth dose of the vaccine – said the head of the Ministry of Health in an interview for the Keshet 12 station. He added that as much as 9 percent those infected received a third booster dose of the vaccine.

Horowitz explained that when the government thought of the so-called of the fifth wave, he had in mind, among others, the current epidemiological situation in Europe, the import of new variants of the virus from abroad. – Growth is too early and too fast now. I don’t want to call it the fifth wave or the new wave at all, ‘added the minister.

605 new infections were confirmed on Tuesday, of which approx 76 percent concerned unvaccinated people. It has not been revealed how many people infected after receiving a booster dose became ill after the two weeks needed for the preparation to work fully.

In the counting 9.2 million Israel’s population, over 5.7 million people received two doses of the vaccine, and over 4 million received a booster injection. About 700,000 vaccinated adults remain unvaccinated.

“The pandemic is still here,” said Minister Horowitz. Those who have not yet received their “booster may not be anti-vaccine, perhaps they only falsely believe that the danger is over,” he added.
