The fourth dose of the coronavirus vaccine doubled the protection against infection. This is evidenced by the results of a study in the age group of 60 years and older conducted by the Ministry of Health in cooperation with the Weizmann Institute, Technion, Hebrew University, the Gartner Institute at the Chaim Shiba Medical Center, RIA Novosti reports.

It follows from the results of the study that the fourth dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, which was made in the age group over 60 years, twice improves protection against infection. In addition, those who received the fourth dose are three times less likely to suffer from the disease in severe form.

The study took into account the data of 400 thousand Israelis who received the fourth vaccination and 600 thousand Israelis who received three doses of the vaccine.

Earlier in January, Russian immunologist Nikolai Kryuchkov called lifestyle changes the first sign of the omicron strain in minors. According to him, after infection, the child may become sluggish and slow to answer questions. In addition, unwillingness to play and loss of appetite are also symptoms of the disease.
