A government adviser on the country’s virus policy predicts booster shots for all Israelis won’t be rolled out before 2022.

“I estimate that the third coronavirus vaccine shot will be given to the entire population only in 2022,” Nadav Davidovitch tells Army Radio.

Israel is currently administering booster shots for the immunocompromised, but has yet to approve it for the general population.

According to Channel 12 news, some 1,000 people have received the third shot thus far.
