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.

There’s nothing more reassuring than a President telling Americans that no matter how much they are suffering, more is coming.

Biden was asked the question “how many of the nation’s kids will you be able to get vaccinated before you need more money from Congress?”

“We’ll get through at least this year. We, we do need more money. But we don’t just need more money for vaccines for children eventually…”

And then Biden said this harrowing statement: “We need more money to plan for the second pandemic.”

He then emphasizes, “there’s going to be another pandemic. We have to think ahead. And that’s not something the last outfit did very well; that’s something we’ve been doing fairly well” he adds before concluding, “that’s why we need the money.”
