Health Ministry officials convene to deliberate approving a fourth COVID-19 vaccine dose for Israelis over 60 and medical workers, after making them available to the immunocompromised.

Ministry sources tell Hebrew media that “the direction is positive” on approval.

An advisory panel has already back additional booster shots for older Israelis and medical workers, but Health Minister Director-General Nachman Ash has yet to authorize the recommendation.
