WHO recommends COVID boosters for people at risk

The World Health Organization said on Thursday that people with severe health conditions and those who have been vaccinated with inactivated COVID-19 jabs should receive a booster dose.

Inactivated COVID-19 vaccines include those developed by Chinese companies Sinovac Biotech and Sinopharm and Indian manufacturer Bharat Biotech.

The recommendation follows the meeting of the Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) held earlier this week, during which the scientists concluded that immunocompromised populations should receive boosters since they are at higher risk of breakthrough infection.
