The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has made a fourth coronavirus vaccine shot available for immunocompromised people, but Israel is the first to officially suggest that anyone over the age of 60 and medical workers receive the extra dose.
“Help us overcome the Omicron wave that is sweeping the world,” said Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. The Health Ministry said that the Pandemic Response team ruled Tuesday night that the fourth shot of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine should be utilized, available four months after receiving the third dose.
Bennett applauded Israel for being the first in the world to provide a third shot and is leading the way to administer the fourth. “No need to wait” tweeted Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz. “Go get vaccinated.”
“Another vaccine for people over the age of 60 and for medical staff of all ages” Horowitz suggested. “This is our top priority for Omicron: protecting the adults who are most vulnerable and keeping the medical staff safe.”
Not only is the fourth dose being recommended, but the Pandemic Response Team also says the time between one’s second and third vaccine doses should be decreased from five months to three months.
Additional details and a formal announcement are expected to be made by Health Ministry Director-General Nachman Ash in the next few days.

CIA whistleblower: analysts given money to bury covid lab-leak theory
The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic sent a letter to CIA director William Burns discussing the CIA and a COVID-19 cover-up. The letter asserts that it has knowledge from a whistleblower from the CIA’s “Covid Discovery Team” that was tasked with investigating the origins of the novel coronavirus. “New testimony from a highly credibly whistleblower” alleges that the CIA “rewarded six analysts with significant financial incentives to change their COVID-19 origins conclusion from a lab-leak to zoonosis
Apart from a “lone officer” in the group who believed the virus “originated through zoonosis,” the remaining officials agreed that, on balance of probabilities, the coronavirus was likely the result of a lab-leak.
“According to the whistleblower, at the end of its review, six of the seven members of the Team believed the intelligence and science were sufficient to make a low confidence assessment that Covid-19 originated from a laboratory in Wuhan, China,” the letter reads. “To come to the eventual public determination of uncertainty, the other six members were given a significant monetary incentive to change their position.”
In June, the agency declassified its report that the available evidence on the origins of the coronavirus suggested it “was not genetically engineered.”
