A fourth Covid vaccine dose should be offered to all adults over-75 and the most vulnerable over-12s this spring, the UK’s vaccines advisory body has said.
Those now being offered a second booster this spring, to be administered six months after their previous dose, are:
- adults aged 75 years and over
- residents in a care home for older adults
- individuals aged 12 years and over who are immunosuppressed
An autumn booster programme, aimed at a wider group of people, is also planned later this year.
