The Director General of the Ministry of Health, Prof. Nachman Ash, today (Sunday) expressed concern about the impact of the US Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) decision not to recommend the booster to the general population - young people in Israel. "FDA," Ash told Walla !.



Prof. Ash noted that if the move leads to a slowdown in immunization, the ministry will consider the next steps to prevent the disease.

If the incidence and number of severely ill patients will go we will have to think of other solutions we've been avoiding them until now to reduce the morbidity, "he added.



He said the administration's decision does not change Israeli policy regarding green character, and Maybe two or three weeks while they (the FDA - "MK) will convene again and decide to lower the age of eligibility for the booster."

Ash also noted that the Ministry of Health will not announce the vaccination of children under the age of 12 until the FDA approves it.

"For the vaccination of children, we will already wait for their decision, and we will not make an independent decision, because we would like to rely on a large study that does not exist in the country. In the booster vaccination, we had enough data to make an independent decision."



Ash also said that the ministry is considering opening discussions on the epidemic treatment team to the public to promote transparency.

"We want to do this after a discussion and talk with the IDF members because some of the members claim that it will be difficult for us to have their say if the discussion is public," the director general of the Ministry of Health added.

The FDA on Friday recommended approving the administration of the third dose, the "booster" against the corona virus, to people 65 and older and at-risk groups.

This, at the end of a re-election of an expert panel, after rejecting the approval of the additional dose to the entire population.



The FDA itself is expected to make a decision in the coming days regarding the recommendation of its experts, although the organization usually accepts the committee's recommendations.

The staff recommendation is also subject to the approval of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which will address the issue on Wednesday.
