Hamas-run Gaza health ministry urges Palestinians to get third Covid-19 vaccine shot

The Gaza health ministry announced on Thursday that it is ready to vaccinate residents with the third dose of the coronavirus vaccine.

The Gaza health ministry announced on Thursday that it is ready to vaccinate Palestinian residents with the third dose against the coronavirus. 

The health ministry said in a press statement that anyone who has received a second dose of the coronavirus more than six months ago is entitled to a booster shot.

It called for the elderly, in particular, to come forward and receive a third dose of the vaccine, to reduce their chances of being hospitalised from the disease.


The Israeli-blockaded coastal enclave is suffering from a serious deterioration of its health facilities amid a lack of medicine and equipment. 

On Thursday, the health ministry reported 728 new Covid-19 infections over the last 24 hours, including seven deaths.


It brought the total number of infections in Gaza to 175,092 cases and more than 1,439 people have died from the disease.
