Israel will consider authorizing a fourth COVID booster vaccine dose to immunocompromised citizens, reports Channel 12 news.

According to the report, health officials will discuss the potential of administering yet another dose of the vaccine to the most at-risk populations with the spread of the new, worrying Omicron variant.

Israelis with compromised immune systems — including those undergoing cancer treatments — were the first to receive a third booster dose of the COVID vaccine back in July.

The UK announced last week that its immunosuppressed population could receive a fourth dose of the coronavirus vaccine.
