82a074eb06a6c9e - Israeli Ministry of health: 4 million Israelis have received the third dose of newcrown vaccine

according to the data of the Israeli Ministry of health, of the approximately 9.5 million people in the country, 4001031 Israelis have been vaccinated with the third dose of vaccine. As of Tuesday night local time, More than 5.7 million people received two doses of vaccine

Israel became the first country in the world to launch booster vaccine in August, as health officials scrambled to control the delta variant and found that the protective effect provided by its initial two dose vaccine campaign began to subside about five months later

a large-scale Israeli study published last month showed that compared with those who received only two doses of Pfizer biontech’s new crown vaccine, the effect of the third dose of booster needle in preventing serious diseases was 92%. Health officials say the third dose can effectively improve the protective effect and has little side effects

the recent debate has focused on the approval of vaccines for children aged 5-11. Israel is expected to follow the steps of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve vaccination for people in this age group. In an angry debate, health officials reiterated that parents will be able to decide whether their children are vaccinated, which is not mandatory

meanwhile, Israeli channel 12 News reported on Tuesday that health ministry officials are considering allowing children under the age of 12 (who have recovered from the virus) to be eligible for a green pass within one year after recovery, before they need to be vaccinated. At present, children over the age of 12 are eligible for six months

channel 12 reported that the policy change was due to the lack of data on the time for children in this age group to maintain high immune levels after recovering from covid. The green pass allows those who have received the new crown vaccine, have recovered, or have recently tested negative to enter public places

also on Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Israeli health minister Nizan Horowitz announced that they had agreed to end the restrictions on the number of outdoor gatherings and lift the restrictions on green passes for some activities

in outdoor gatherings with more than 100 people, the requirement of wearing masks will be cancelled (masks are no longer required for smaller gatherings). However, the requirement to wear masks indoors remains unchanged

Israel is the first country to widely adopt booster vaccine. The end of the fourth wave of vaccine in Israel is at least partly due to its booster vaccine campaign, which began in August among people over the age of 65 and quickly extended to other populations

about 650000 people eligible for vaccination have not been vaccinated, while about 1.1 million Israelis eligible for booster shots have not been vaccinated

since then, the United States and other countries have followed suit, although some countries only approved the vaccination of the elderly or people with congenital diseases. The booster is widely believed to have helped Israel fight the fourth wave of the epidemic

according to the figures released by the Israeli Ministry of health on Tuesday, after more than 10000 cases three months ago and more than 90000 cases in early September, the number of covid-19 active cases in Israel has decreased to 6323. The data also showed that 563 new cases were confirmed on Monday, down from 5000 to 6000 cases a day nearly two months ago. 153 people were hospitalized due to serious illness, and the death toll was 8130
