Israel begins vaccination against Omicron strain

In the near future, the Israeli Health Insurance Funds will begin vaccinating the population with the Pfizer vaccine, which has been upgraded to combat the currently dominant Omicron strain.

The Ministry of Health recommends vaccination against “omicron” for people over 65 years of age, healthcare workers, pregnant women, people with chronic diseases and other categories of citizens who are at risk.

At the same time, the vaccine will be provided at will to all citizens over 12 years of age who have already received two doses of the coronavirus vaccine or have been ill with this disease.

It is possible to vaccinate against the Omicron strain only three months after receiving the previous dose of the vaccine or three months after recovery from coronavirus.
