Opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu has yet to receive a fourth dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, Channel 12 reports.

Quoting unnamed sources in Netanyahu’s “circle,” the network says the former prime minister took an antibody test and plans to get the fourth dose soon.

While still serving as premier, he was the first person in Israel to be vaccinated. Netanyahu, 72, later received a booster shot after Israel began offering third vaccine doses over the summer.

So far, Israel has only made fourth doses available to people over 60, the immunocompromised and medical workers.
