In December, Israel approved a fourth dose for those with compromised immune systems.

A senior medical officer in the region says a fourth dose of the Covid vaccine may be offered to the public in time.

Dr. Cathriona Walsh believes it's not possible to say for certain if an additional booster will be required to protect against further variants.

She says it depends on how long antibodies last for from the third booster.
