An Israeli hospital is set to launch a clinical trial to test the effectiveness of a fourth coronavirus vaccine shot in the coming days, as restrictions are being reimposed due to the highly contagious omicron variant.

The trial at Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer, will be led by Prof. Gili Regev-Yochay, director of the hospital’s Infectious Disease Epidemiology Unit, and will involve several phases. The research subjects will be 150 members of the hospital’s medical staff from whom serological testing data was collected over the past year, since vaccinations began in Israel.
