Israeli president kicks off COVID-19 vaccine
Israel launches Covid booster shot campaign for over 60s • FRANCE 24 English
Israeli president kicks off COVID-19 vaccine booster campaign. Israeli President Isaac Herzog received a booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine on Friday, a day after reports emerged that the country would begin offering a third jab to those over 60. Herzog is 60 years old. The country had previously been offering a third jab to adults considered at-risk. The U.S. has not done so, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and FDA initially issuing a sharp response to Pfizer’s announcement that it would seek emergency use authorization for a booster. At the time, the CDC and FDA said fully vaccinated Americans did not need to seek a booster. Check out the link to read more about this.
