Netanyahu claims 3rd vaccine shot ‘only way to protect the population’

Opposition Leader Benjamin Netanyahu puts out a video statement confirming he spoke twice in recent days with Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla.

He also calls for third coronavirus vaccine doses to be “immediately” administered to adults despite the FDA saying there is no current evidence that a booster shot is needed. Israel approved the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine in the country on the basis of the FDA’s emergency approval of the shot.

“This is the only way to protect the population,” Netanyahu claims.
