Israelis aged 60 and up will be eligible to receive a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine starting Sunday, Health Ministry Director-General Nachman Ash tells health provider managers during a meeting.

Ash says that the third shot will only be available to those who got their second dose at least five months prior.

It will not be available to those who have recovered from COVID-19 and haven’t been vaccinated.
