Israel has begun administering a fourth dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine to people aged over 60 and to healthcare workers who received their third shot at least four months ago.
Already, those eligible have been queuing at vaccination centers to get their jabs.
Announcing this new rollout in a TV address, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett told Israelis that they would now have a “new layer of protection”
Last week, Israel approved a fourth dose for elderly people in care homes and those with compromised immune systems. END
