ER Editor: According to Mossad sources speaking confidentially to Benjamin Fulford, Israeli PM Naftali Bennett has been taken in for questioning by the white hats based on some pretext. Would this have anything to do with Israel doing a sudden about-face on the fourth dose?
Israel suspends fourth dose of Covid vaccine until further notice
This is unexpected news. Israel is backtracking and abandoning the fourth injection of Pfizer’s vaccine pending study results.
A fourth dose announced a week ago
A week earlier, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett announced, not without enthusiasm, that the Hebrew State would inoculate the over 60s, the most fragile and the health care workers with a new dose of Pfizer vaccine in response to the Omicron variant. A reminder to the reminder, the Washington Post pointed out.
“The citizens of Israel were the first in the world to receive the third dose of Covid-19 vaccine and we continue to pioneer with the fourth,” he said. “The world will follow in our footsteps.”
An announcement that was based on the recommendations of two expert committees (Vaccine Advisory Committee and Pandemic Action Committee) that felt that the immunity gained from the third booster would wear off over time, as it did with the second. This was also the reason why the Ministry of Health decided to reduce the delay between the second and third dose to three months, as the French executive has done.
No scientific evidence for a fourth dose, Israeli scientists say
This time, scientific voices have expressed concern and skepticism. They point to the lack of solid clinical studies and the danger of fatiguing the immune system with too many injections, compromising its ability to fight the coronavirus, reports the New York Times.
“The fact that we were the first to administer a third vaccine does not mean that a fourth is necessary without scientific basis,” says Dr. Dror Mevorah of Hadassah University Medical Center. He believes that the decrease in antibody levels is a natural phenomenon and that increasing them would be of limited benefit.
“I respect the opinion of those who say prevention is better than cure,” Professor Levine said in an interview. “There’s nothing wrong with being prepared in advance. But before inoculating a fourth dose, it’s best to wait for new scientific data.”
Sheba Hospital has just started a clinical study on a panel of 150 caregivers with the goal of determining whether or not a fourth dose is necessary for the entire population, (Les Echos). Initial results should be provided within a fortnight.
Israeli experts disagree
Conversely, other Israeli experts and officials believe it may be too late to protect the vulnerable when new scientific data becomes available.
“If we don’t vaccinate, the price will be very high – severe morbidity and many quarantines,” said Dr. Boaz, head of the advisory group that recommended Israel begin offering the fourth dose, at a Dec. 21 press conference, The Times of Israel reported. “This variant is like a tsunami,” he added.
“We can sit in our academic chairs and wait for research from abroad, but that’s a kind of privilege we don’t think we have,” warned Dr. Tal Brosh, another member of the advisory committee.
In any case, in order to start a new vaccination campaign, the director general of the Ministry of Health, Professor Nahman Ash, must first give his approval. And he has decided to wait for the results of studies on the fourth dose.
Omicron, a harmless and protective variant?
In spite of its contagiousness, Omicron would cause much less severe cases (Les Echos), which could be a final step in the evolution of the epidemic. In any case, this is what many people in Israel are hoping for: a mass contagion to the Omicron variant that could lead to a collective immunity, making the fifth wave the last one.
“The large number of people infected with Omicron, expected in Israel and around the world, can greatly increase the level of immunity of the entire population and help eradicate Delta and some other variants,” explains Professor Eran Segal, a computer biologist at the Weizmann Institute.
