Israeli study: 4th COVID shot halves death risk among severe patients over 60

A new Israeli study strengthens evidence that getting fourth shots of the coronavirus vaccine curtailed deaths in Israel, showing that the Pfizer boosters halved the chances of death from COVID among severe hospitalized patients over age 60.

The study by Assuta Ashdod University Hospital, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, also found that fourth shots halve the odds that a patient will need ventilation.

“In short, they appear to significantly reduce the two worst outcomes — death and ventilation,” Dr. Tal Brosh, who led the comparison of outcomes among three-shot receipts and four-shot recipients, told The Times of Israel.
