Covid: NHS plans booster jab for those 50 and over before winter

Published June 30, 2021

The NHS has been given the green light to start planning a Covid vaccine booster programme in the UK ahead of this winter.
A bigger flu season than normal is expected, meaning extra protection against Covid is likely to be needed.
More than 30 million of the most vulnerable should receive a third dose, vaccine experts are advising.
They will include all adults aged 50 and over, and anyone younger who qualifies for a flu jab.
