Over 3 million Israelis have now received COVID vaccine boosters
[Times of Israel] - Over three million Israelis have received a third dose of the coronavirus vaccine, the Health Ministry announced on Friday.
The ministry said 3,020,716 Israelis have received the booster shot since they began to be offered this summer, while urging all eligible citizens over 12 to go and get vaccinated if they haven’t already.
"The vaccine has proven to be the most effective means of fighting the coronavirus, and it is available to everyone. Everyone who gets vaccinated protects themselves, their family and their surroundings," the Health Ministry said in a statement.
...Also Friday, a US government advisory panel was meeting to decide whether to approve administering booster shots of Pfizer-BioNTech’s coronavirus vaccine, with Israeli health officials presenting figures indicating waning immunity against infection among all age groups around six months after vaccination.
And not a single death or serious complication: https://www.timesofisrael.com/of-600000-israelis-who-received-3rd-dose-fewer-than-50-reported-side-effects/.
Plus. Study: COVID booster recipients 20 times more protected against serious illness
A new study conducted in Israel shows that individuals given a third COVID-19 vaccine dose are nearly twenty times more protected against serious illness and more than ten times more protected against infection, compared with those who received their second dose at least five months previously.
Yet, according to some sources, in USA you die the moment you just think about getting the third shot - I wonder what the explanation to the difference is (Maybe Israeli government managed to keep thousands of deaths secret?).
