Over-50s and care workers among those to be offered booster COVID jabs

Written by on 14/09/2021

Booster COVID jabs will be offered to people aged 50 and over, those in care homes, and frontline health and social care workers, the government has announced.

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) said ideally the Pfizer vaccine should be used for a booster, or alternatively a half-dose of a Moderna jab.

A third dose should not be given until six months after a person has received a second shot, the committee added.
