Pfizer was approved by Israel for the third dose of Corona Ticker. Booster dosing will start from next month. Israel has so far only vaccinated Pfizer. Six months after the vaccination, many are being re-infected. Vaccines can’t stop delta strains. As a result, the country feels the need for new vaccinations.
The incidence of corona was greatly reduced in Israel. But recently the country has been hit hard by delta infections. The average number of infections per day in this country is now at least 450. The Israeli health ministry said 46 corona patients were in critical condition at a hospital. Half of them were vaccinated.
“Most of them are in their sixties,” said Nashman Ash, coordinator of the Covid Response Group. Moreover there are other ailments.
In addition to the third dose, Israel also wants to speed up the immunization of adolescents. They are also making an agreement to buy more vaccines from Pfizer.
A few days ago, Pfizer said that they are going to submit a trial report of the third dose application soon. They will then apply for clearance to the United States and Europe. But initially rejecting the offer, the United States said very few people in their country were being infected after taking two doses. As a result, there is no need for a third dose right now.
The European Medical Agency did not show interest. Even the World Health Organization says, ‘A large part of the whole world has not received a single dose. Now is not the time to discuss the need for a third dose. Moreover, there is not enough information about the effectiveness of the two doses of Covid Ticker.
But Pfizer said Israel had given them a report. Seeing that, they are thinking of giving a third booster dose.
It has been decided to give booster dose to the elderly and weak people with physical illness. It will start from August. But it has not yet been decided whether everyone will be given a third dose.
