Start boosters now before Covid-19 spreads wide

The Times of Israel reports:

After boosters, elderly Israelis who are fully inoculated have just one fiftieth of the chance of COVID death compared to unvaccinated people in the same age bracket.

According to Health Ministry data for the last seven days of September, there were 6.43 daily deaths per 100,000 Israelis aged 60-plus. For older people who were vaccinated three times, the average was 0.13.

The statistics indicate that the shift from a two-shot to a three-shot regime has saved many lives. When elderly Israelis who are vaccinated twice get their third shot, they eliminate eleven-twelfths of the risk of death.

The daily deaths over the last seven days of September for the double vaccinated elderly was 1.5, compared to the 0.13 figure for the triple vaccinated.

Basically being double vaccinated reduces the chance of death by 75% but a booster shot reduces it further to 98% for over 60s.

We should start rolling out booster shots to any over 60s whose first two shots were over six months ago. Doing so will save lives.
