The U.K. approaches booster shots to adults after 3 months of the second dose

Published on : Tuesday, November 30, 2021

Adults in the U.K. will be able to get their booster COVID-19 vaccine doses three months after their second shot, the government indicated on Monday, dramatic acceleration of the country’s inoculation drive that comes amid fears over the Omicron variant. Boosters are available a minimum of six months after a second dose, for people over 40 and for over-16s with underlying health conditions.

Sajid Javid(Health Secretary) confirmed he had accepted the move in Parliament on Monday, hours after the U.K. advisory body on vaccinations recommended it. The new step will take place about geographic inequalities in the effort to protect people from COVID-19.

A disparity highlighted concerning new variants was discovered in Southern Africa, where vaccination rates are lower. The U.K. so far administered 17 million booster shots, inoculating 31% of its over-12 population.
