Israeli's Prime Minister Naftali Bennett has confirmed that his country will become the first to make a third dose of coronavirus vaccine widely available.
He said people over 60 who are already double vaccinated would be eligible for a third shot.
Experts have warned that it's not yet clear whether such a move would reduce infections.
Bennett said it had been carefully reviewed.
"The decision was based on considerable research and analysis as well as the rise in risk of the Delta variant wave. Israel has already vaccinated 2,000 immunosuppressed people with a third dose with no severe adverse events and now we're rolling out a national third dose campaign."
