Israel began a drive to administer booster shots at the beginning of August, and has so far inoculated about 2.8 million people with a third dose of coronavirus vaccine.

Health officials have said that the effects of the initial shots weaken five months after inoculation, making boosters necessary.

Some 6 million of the 9.4 million strong population have had one dose, and about 5.5 million have had two jabs. The country, once a front-runner in the global race to move on from Covid-19, became one of the world’s biggest pandemic hot spots in early September, with the highest per-capita infection rate of anywhere in the week through Sept.
