Priority will be given for those who are most at greatest risk.
Today, the British Committee on Immunization recommended that the intensive course be extended to all adults above 18 years old. Priority should be given to those most at risk and the interval reduced to three months.
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization recommends that two mRNA vaccines are preferred for booster doses—Moderna half-dose or Pfizer full-dose. AstraZeneca vaccine may be available to those who are not able to receive the mRNA vaccine.
Patients who are extremely immunosuppressed will also receive a booster dose. This is their fourth dose of vaccine and occurs three months after the previous dose.
The second dose should be administered at the 12-week mark after the first. Now they have been given a dose.
Wei Shen Lim, Chairman of JCVI COVID-19 Immunization, said: “Vaccination with a booster dose will help increase our level of protection against Omicron variants.” “This is an important way for us to reduce the impact of this mutation on our lives. In particular, in the coming months.
Each of the four British nations can now decide whether or not to follow this recommendation. This is a common practice during a pandemic.
According to reports, Omicron variants could be transmitted in the community in England and Scotland.
Today, the UK and Brussels announced that they are expanding their booster program to all adults. Similar methods have been implemented in other EU countries.
