Millions To Get Early Boosters

Covid boosters for everyone over 18: Third jabs are approved for ALL adults with a three-month gap to protect against incoming Omicron wave and children aged 12-15 can now get second shot – as two more variant cases are detected in London

People aged 18 to 39 will be able to come forward for their third dose so long as they had their second at least three months ago.

The top-up drive, which previously was only open to over-40s, will prioritise people based on their age so that those who are most vulnerable get first access.

People will be offered Pfizer or Moderna as a booster dose, even if they were originally vaccinated with AstraZeneca.

Severely immunosuppressed patients who were given three vaccine doses as part of their primary course will also be offered a fourth booster dose.

No10 experts fear the highly evolved Omicron strain, already thought to be spreading domestically, may ‘significantly’ reduce the effectiveness of two vaccine doses.

But they expect the jabs to hold up much better against hospitalisation and death.
