Israel’s Prime Minister announced that the country would offer a Pfizer vaccine as a booster to people over 60 who are fully vaccinated.
According to Reuters, Israel was a world leader in immunization implementation. As the most vulnerable population segment, many older people received their vaccination between December to February. However, the Health Ministry twice documented a decrease in the vaccine's efficiency against infection and a modest decrease in its protection against the virus since the emergence of the Delta variant. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that the booster campaign would effectively turn Israel into a trial ground for a third dose before approval, with shots provided by health maintenance groups.
