Professor Gili Regev, Head of the Department of Prevention of Infectious Diseases at Sheba Hospital, said that for now there is no need to rush to vaccinate with the 4th dose.
She stated this in an interview with Ynet.
“Initial results show that after receiving the fourth dose, the level of antibodies rises fivefold. This is not bad, but we expected much more. This is not to say that we are disappointed with the results, but clearly expected something more. At least the kind that was observed after the third vaccine, “Gili Regev emphasized.
According to the professor, there is not enough information about the fourth vaccine so far. She noted that there is no need to introduce the 4th dose for the entire population.
