Israel is set to give a second boost of the coronavirus vaccine to people with weakened immune systems, the top health official said on Thursday, with vaccinations in the group starting today.

An Israeli hospital piloted a fourth dose of the vaccine to a team of health workers on Monday in the first major study to see if a second round of boosters could help treat the Omicron mutation. The results are expected within two weeks.
