At Shiba Medical Center on the outskirts of the capital Tel Aviv, trials began on 150 medical workers who received a booster (third) dose in August, being given the fourth dose of the Pfizer/Biontech vaccine.

Fewer antibodies in the body even after additional doses
The additional doses given to the personnel were tested and found to have low levels of antibodies in their bodies. The trial has started at a time when Israeli officials are considering giving the country’s population a second booster dose as infections from the Omicron form continue to grow out of the country. “Hopefully we will be able to prove that the fourth dose does indeed provide protection against Omicron and is much needed,” said Professor Jacob LaVey, former director of the Department of Cardiovascular Transplantation at the Shiba Medical Center.

Different treatment of corona in every country
On the one hand, there is South Korea which is going through the worst phase of Corona, yet it is insisting on importing Corona pills instead of booster dose. On the other hand there are countries like Israel which are administering four vaccines to their citizens. Many countries, including the US and UK, have already started administering the third dose to their citizens. The World Health Organization has already warned about this. The World Health Organization chief warned that the indiscriminate introduction of booster doses in rich countries would make the Covid-19 epidemic more likely to last.

Different age limit for the same vaccine in every country
He had said that no country will be able to come out of the grip of the epidemic in this manner. WHO Director-General Dros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Wednesday that vaccines have saved many lives this year, but their uneven distribution has also killed many. While four doses of the vaccine are being administered to a person in Israel, there are many African countries like Nigeria where a large number of people are yet to reach the first dose. Recently, India also announced a vaccination program for children between the ages of 15 and 18. Rather, in most countries, children up to the age of 12 years are getting the vaccine. In countries like Cuba, even 2-year-olds are being vaccinated against corona. In China this age is 3 years.
