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. report
