RawStory.com – JERUSALEM – Senior citizens who received a second booster of the Pfizer–BioNTech COVID-19 vaccination had a 78% lower mortality rate from the disease than those who got one only, a study from Israel showed on Sunday.

The country’s largest healthcare provider, Clalit Health Services, said the 40-day study included more than half a million people aged 60 to 100.


Some 58% of participants had received a second booster – or two shots in addition to the basic two-shot regimen. The remainder had received only one booster. Researchers recorded 92 deaths among the first group and 232 deaths among the second, smaller group.

“The main conclusion is that the second booster is lifesaving,” said Ronen Arbel, Health Outcomes Researcher at Clalit and Sapir College.

The report was issued as a preprint and has not been peer-reviewed. The research excluded people who received rival Moderna’s vaccine and those who had taken oral anti-COVID therapy.

Israeli health officials have put out a number of studies on vaccine efficacy throughout the pandemic that have impacted policymaking in other countries.

  1. Maybe we should compare all causes death to a real control group someday, long term, the unvaccinated, hmmm? 1 shot, 2 shots, 3 shots, they holler! One more shot so we can make another dollar. All we got from the unvaccinated was money. From the rest we got money and CONTROL, honey.

  2. A study of 40-days?? This is a clear deception. What can say 40 days about
    All cause deaths after these toxic jobs??

    There is not a single country where after these toxic jobs all cause mortality did not rise.
    Pfizer own data shows that Deaths due to heart attacks has increased by 500 %.
    There are over 1000 studies showing lethality of these toxic jabs.

    It is all cause mortality which is important, not Covid cases.

    • Long covid since the beginning has reported heart palpitations and erythema , and it is my theory that younger people who got covid but did not show symptoms may end up showing them later. My experience was this symptom went away after being noticeable for six months, during long covid, in a few weeks after the J shot. It felt as if the virus was burrowing into my bone marrow, that was the feeling. The covid related heart issues were pre-vaccine.

  3. There was another study that showed the J shot was better after all for endurance of protection. J&J got hit pretty hard with the civil settlement not long before the pandemic, and has offered to continue providing vaccines at not-for profit, while Moderna and Pfizer have raised prices. The single J shot is viral vector, and the multiple pfizer is mRNA. 10 for one, or 30 each for multiple up to four ? Pretty sure I know which stock people would want.
