The IDF announces that all military personnel can now receive a fourth dose of the COVID vaccination.

Anyone serving in the military who is over 18 and is more than four months past their third dose is now eligible, the IDF says.

Until recently, fourth doses of the vaccine were only available to those over 60 or those who are high-risk or work in a high-risk situation. To date, just 679,158 Israelis — 7.3% of the population — have received a fourth dose.
