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.

Much of the world is getting on with life and attempting to recover any of the horrendous damage caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has just imposed even more Covid-19 lockdowns sparking unrest.

Chinese citizens are banning together to protest yet another round of strict covid protocols and lockdowns suffocating their freedom.

In Shanghai, citizens chanted against President Xi Jinping’s rule, according to CNN. Chants “Xi Jinping, step down” and “Communist party, step down” were chanted. Some protesters held up blank sheets of paper to symbolize resistance against the Chinese government.

One social media user explained the black sheets of paper: “We don’t need to write anything on it. It is a symbol of the revolution of the people.”

An apartment fire in Urumqi, the capital of the far western region of Xinjiang, killed ten people and injured nine last week. The incident triggered “the most recent wave of unrest” because “it was believed that the mobility restrictions in the area either trapped the residents or slowed the dispatch of emergency services” reports National Review.

Various universities including in Shanghai, Beijing, and Nanjing, saw huge crowds of students who honored the victims and denounced China’s zero-Covid-19 policy and strict control measures.
