Covid booster jabs should be offered to people over 40, UK vaccine advisers say
JCVI says vaccination programme should be extended to include healthy people aged 40 to 49
The Covid-19 booster vaccination programme should be extended to include healthy people aged 40 to 49, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) said.
Those currently eligible for a booster, which is usually given six months after the second dose, include those aged 50 or over, or anyone younger seen as clinically very vulnerable to Covid. Others who are eligible include frontline health and care workers, or those who care for someone at high risk from Covid.
