Opposition Leader Benjamin Netanyahu, who became the first person in Israel to be vaccinated in December while serving as premier, recently had a serological test that found his level of coronavirus antibodies to be low, according to a report by journalist Ben Caspit carried by the Walla news site.

The report directly links Netanyahu’s call for older Israelis to be given third vaccine shots to the test results, asserting the former prime minister reached the conclusion about the need for a booster shortly after learning about his antibody levels.

It also notes that Netanyahu, 71, has recently been photographed double-masking in the Knesset.
