Report: Israelis aged 45+ could start getting COVID booster shots in coming days – The Times of Israel

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett has ordered that COVID-19 booster shots start being given to Israelis aged 45 and up in the coming days, Channel 13 news reports.
Currently, the third vaccine doses are being given to those aged 60 and up.
The network says Bennett is in talks with health officials aimed at implementing the move as early as this coming Sunday. Some professionals are said to have thus far objected to the move.
The report adds that data so far has proven that the booster shots are safe, although it is too early to determine their effectiveness.
As The Times of Israel’s environment reporter, I try to convey the facts and science behind climate change and environmental degradation, to explain – and critique – the official policies affecting our future, and to describe Israeli technologies that can form part of the solution.
I am passionate about the natural world and disheartened by the dismal lack of awareness to environmental issues shown by most of the public and politicians in Israel.
I’m proud to be doing my part to keep Times of Israel readers properly informed about this vital subject – which can and does effect policy change.
