Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett received the vaccine in Kfar Saba on August 20.

From August 20, Israel began giving booster doses to people over 40 years old who received the second dose at least 5 months ago.

`We are at the climax of the battle, together we can win, it is within reach, but we are not there yet,` Bennett said before getting the injection.

Infections in Israel have increased in recent weeks, raising concerns that the country will have to shut down during the Jewish holidays in September.

`If we get the third injection, we can avoid the fourth blockade,` Bennett emphasized.

Israel was one of the first countries to implement vaccination in the world, starting in mid-December 2020.

To try to stop the spread, officials last week began a booster vaccination drive for people aged 50 and older, after starting a campaign for people over 60 late last month.
