Health Ministry okays 4th vaccine dose for over-18s with compromised immune systems

Health Ministry Director-General Nachman Ash has approved a fourth dose of coronavirus vaccine to people over age 18 who suffer from compromised immune systems, and who are thus at greater risk of serious illness from COVID-19.

A fourth shot will also be made available to people who are at greater risk of infection due to their line of work.

To be eligible for a fourth dose, four months must have elapsed since the previous shot.
