UK JCVI recommends boosters for all adults

United Kingdom Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) recommended on Monday that all individuals over the age of 18 become eligible for a booster coronavirus vaccine dose.

The previous recommendation referred only to those older than 40 and people at higher risk from the disease.

"The booster will be offered in order of descending age groups, with priority given to the vaccination of older adults and those in a COVID-19 at-risk group. In response to the changing risk posed by the Omicron variant, the booster will now be given no sooner than 3 months after the primary course," the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) explained in a statement.
