Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz says Israelis may need to get a fourth COVID vaccine dose.

“It’s not unreasonable [to think] we’ll need a fourth vaccine,” says Horowitz in an interview with Channel 12, after Health Ministry data indicated that 9 percent of the new cases diagnosed yesterday had received the third, booster, dose.

He also tells the station he doesn’t think Israel is entering a fifth wave of infection, despite the rising number of COVID cases.
