Netanyahu to health minister: Start giving 3rd doses in August

Opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu petitions Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz to start giving Israelis a third coronavirus vaccine dose in August.

Netanyahu says that “from conversations I’ve had with some of the best experts in the world, I believe the third vaccine [dose] should be given to the over-50 population starting in August, in order to finish the task until the end of September.”

He says no one currently knows when a drop in immunity will leave the population susceptible to infection once again.

“The price of being late… could be deadly and cost many lives.”
