We have no privilege to wait: we must start vaccinating adults in the third dose - now

The soaring morbidity left the immunization committee with no choice but to decide on another dose, and fast.

Given all the variables, and although there is still no unequivocal data, this would be the least dangerous thing to do.

One thing is guaranteed: all countries of the world will monitor the progress of the operation with a magnifying glass

The Vaccines Committee decided last night (Wednesday) to recommend the administration of a third dose of Pfizer vaccine and will soon determine for whom as well.

Not only does the Vaccines Committee in Israel deal with the question of the additional vaccine, it is the thing that perhaps concerns the whole world more than anything else.

And the whole world is looking at us.



The fact that we were the first to get vaccinated and in large numbers also has many benefits.

Here we could see how much the gene vaccine, and how the morbidity decreased until a delta mutation arrived.

Just as it was possible to notice very quickly in Israel that many vaccinated people are suddenly infected with a new mutation.

Therefore, it is not surprising that the data presented to the committee are unequivocal regarding the effectiveness of the vaccine, which dropped significantly six months after receiving the second vaccine dose.

It is not easy to make decisions under conditions of scientific uncertainty, but these are part of the conditions of the game in global epidemics.



If the level of morbidity in Israel was low, one could wait.

Wait for extensive research that analyzes data of tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of vaccinated.

But when the daily number of verified people exceeds 200 and every day 15-10 critically ill patients are added, we no longer have this privilege.

About 2,000 people suffering from immunosuppression have already received the third vaccine in Israel, without any unusual effects.

At the same time, data provided yesterday by Pfizer shows that the level of neutralizing antibodies jumps after a third dose of vaccine five times in the age group 55-18 and 11 times in the age group 85-65.

There is no doubt that if one takes into account all the variables in the equation, a third vaccine dose for the at-risk population is the most non-dangerous thing that can be done.



In the lower age groups, where 93% protection was still observed, it is possible to wait for more data, although it seems that we will all eventually have to give a shoulder once more to at least one more vaccine dose.

The picture becomes clearer

There is also good news.

The prestigious medical journal, New England, published this morning the first study of its kind in the world, by Prof. Gili Regev-Yohai, an infectious disease specialist at Sheba Hospital in Tel Hashomer, who found a match between the level of antibodies that neutralize the corona virus and the degree of infection.

The study was conducted on health care workers who were vaccinated with two doses of vaccine.

During the study period, 39 staff members became infected despite being vaccinated.

Their pre-infection antibody levels were compared to antibody levels of a similar group, adjusted for age, sex, and background classes, and it was found that the lower the antibody level, the greater the risk of infection and infection.



Research can change the rules of the game because it first pierces the number of opposites that one must strive for in order to achieve maximum protection.

According to it, a serological test, which samples blood, can, for example, obviate the need for isolation for those with high antibody levels and can also give a clearer picture of the need for a third vaccine dose for each age group separately.
