People recovered from COVID should get single vaccine shot: Health Ministry

The Health Ministry recommends that people who have recovered from COVID-19 receive a single vaccine dose, instead of the two doses other people are administered.

The decision is made by the Health Ministry’s Priority Committee that advises on vaccination guidelines.

The committee recommends that people get a single dose at least three months after recovering from the virus, Channel 12 reports.

Around 400,000 Israelis currently fall into that category.

There have been 744,513 confirmed cases in Israel since the start of the pandemic.

An Israeli study issued on Friday said that Pfizer’s vaccine is 75 percent effective two to four weeks after a single shot.
