Although the third dose of the Covid-19 vaccine has not yet been given in France, the campaign in Israel is well advanced. These booster doses are now accessible from the age of 12, so the country announced on Sunday, August 29, that all Israelis who are allowed to be vaccinated.
The Hebrew state launched a campaign in late July to inject a third dose of the vaccine into people over 60 years of age. Thereafter the minimum age for admission was gradually reduced. In Israel, more than 5.4 million people received the two-dose vaccine, 58% of the population, and more than 1.9 million per third.
The Israelis must wait to benefit from this third injection “5 months after the second dose. “.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has called for a moratorium on third-degree vaccines to be given to poorer countries where vaccination rates remain low. Israeli Prime Minister Naphtali Bennett responded that the use of these doses in Israel, which has a population of nine million, would not affect global stocks and would allow the effectiveness of these booster doses to be tested.
