Covid Israel, two million people have also received the third dose of the vaccine to date. There have been 7,030 deaths in the country since the beginning of the pandemic. The possibility of having the third vaccination was extended yesterday to all those over 12 years old. At least 5 months must have passed since the second dose of the vaccination which until yesterday was reserved only for those who were over 30 years old.
If deemed necessary, when will the third dose of Covid vaccine be given? It is one of the points that the European Medicines Agency is studying. Right now, “we are closely monitoring the data available in various parts of the world, such as the US and Israel, to understand the optimal timing for the recall.” Qualified sources explain this to Adnkronos Health. While from the EU body they confirm, by answering some questions on the third dose node, that “the data on efficacy in the real world from Europe and other parts of the world are of particular interest to integrate data from clinical studies that study booster doses “.
At this stage, the agency specified, “it has not yet been determined when a booster dose for Covid-19 vaccines may be needed and which populations should be targeted”. And “the Agency is currently examining the emerging data to make recommendations that can support Member States in the context of national vaccination campaigns.”
