Israel was the first country to administer COVID-19 booster shots.
Due to the latest outbreak, the Israeli government decided to give the elderly and immunocompromised a third experimental injection.
But early reports indicate that COVID-19 booster shots may not provide any greater protection against the virus.
14 Israelis who received the booster shot recently were diagnosed with COVID-19.
Three injections within six months and that still didn’t prevent some individuals from getting the virus.
While the mainstream media and health bureaucrats continue parroting that the jabs prevent serious illness, two of the 14 cases were hospitalized.
After one week, roughly 420,000 Israelis received a third injection of the experimental COVID-19 jabs.
With the recent development, it’s questionable if this group has any additional protection against the virus.
Only time will answer that question.
A quick glance at Israel’s Worldometer chart and cases are still rising.
Israel is reporting more cases in August 2021 compared to August 2020 when no experimental jab was available.
In addition to rising cases, August 7th, 2021 was the highest number of reported COVID-19 deaths in Israel since March 28, 2021.

From The Times of Israel:
Fourteen Israelis have been diagnosed with COVID-19 despite having been inoculated with a third COVID-19 vaccine dose, according to Health Ministry data reported by Channel 12 news on Sunday.
According to the network, two of those infected after receiving the booster shot have been hospitalized.
It was not immediately clear whether the 14 contracted the virus before or after receiving the booster. Such sporadic instances would not be enough for medical officials to draw conclusions as to the third dose’s general effectiveness in fighting off the Delta variant of the disease.
Eleven of the 14 cases were over the age of 60, and the remaining three were immunocompromised individuals under 60, the network said. The two that were hospitalized were over 60.
Some 420,000 Israelis have been administered a third booster shot so far, in a drive that began last week.
Meanwhile, in a Sunday meeting, government ministers fought over the prospect of a nationwide lockdown during the upcoming High Holiday period amid surging COVID-19 cases, according to leaks published on Hebrew-language media.
Reports on Channels 12 and 13 and elsewhere said Education Minister Yifat Shasha-Biton, who has courted controversy by calling plans to vaccinate students in schools a “crime,” said during the cabinet meeting that the option of a lockdown must be “taken off the agenda.”
She said such talk was leading to economic instability and “people are anxious for… their livelihood,” the reports said. “We have seen the charts — it doesn’t matter whether countries imposed lockdown or not, the morbidity charts look the same.”
Intelligence Minister Elazar Stern concurred: “We need to eliminate the word ‘lockdown’ from our lexicon. We are causing people to live under threat.”
Hamad Amar, a minister in the Finance Ministry, noted that Australia is currently in its eighth lockdown yet cases are still on the rise, claiming that “lockdown isn’t a solution.”
Other ministers emphasized the need for a lockdown and the importance of talking publicly about a lockdown before imposing one.
The Jerusalem Post also reported:
Some 88% of people who received the third shot of the coronavirus vaccine said they felt “similar” or “better” compared to how they felt in the days following receiving the second vaccine, according to a new report by Clalit Health Services.The health fund released a first report on the side effects of the third shot, based on data it captured from some 4,500 people over 60 out of the 240,000 of their members who received it.Some 31% reported one or more side effects.Some 24% reported pain at the site of injection, 6% swelling in the injection area and 1% swelling in the armpit.
Another 15% of respondents said they experienced at least one systemic side effect.Some 9% reported fatigue, 6.1% feeling generally unwell, 4.3% headaches, 4.3% muscle pain, 2.1% joint pain, 1.4% fever, 0.7% vomiting or diarrhea and 0.1% rash.Only 1% of respondents experienced any other symptoms: 0.4% reported difficulty breathing and 0.3% irregular heartbeat or chest pains.Similarly, only 1% of respondents said they sought medical treatment due to one or more of these side effects.“Although we do not yet have long-term research on the efficacy and safety of the third dose,” said Prof. Ran Balicer, Clalit’s chief innovation officer, “these findings continue to point to the benefit of immunization now, in addition to careful behavior by older adults and avoiding gatherings in closed spaces during these weeks.”At the same time, a small number of older people who were vaccinated with a third COVID shot were infected with coronavirus, The Jerusalem Post has confirmed.The report was first published by N12.Some 14 people out of more than 400,000 who were vaccinated with a third shot were diagnosed with the virus, among them two who were hospitalized – one in mild condition and the other in moderate condition, according to the Health Ministry.The individuals were infected seven or more days after receiving the vaccine. The majority were over age 60, but three were under 60 and had received a third dose because they were immunosuppressed.
