Israel offers fourth COVID jab as first country worldwide | DW News

Posted in biotech/medical, government

Israel has become the first country in the world to offer a fourth dose of the vaccine to risk groups.
That includes anyone over sixty years of age. It’s meant to protect the vulnerable from the omicron variant, and the country is also facing rising infection numbers. Israel’s government has successfully used vaccination to flatten the curve in the past. Delta infections fell after the country offered a third dose to people last year.

DW Correspondent Tania Kraemer went to a vaccination center in Tel Aviv and talked to people about what that fourth jab means.
