This week, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) announced that in addition to those aged over 50 years and at higher risk from Covid-19, all adults aged 40 to 49 years should now be offered a booster jab 6 months after their second dose.
Booster vaccinations should be with either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, with both expected to give a good level of extra protection. The NHS expects bookings to open to over 40s from Monday 22 November. Keep an eye on the NHS website for more information.
In addition, the JCVI is advising that all 16 to 17 year olds should be offered a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine. This should be given 12+ weeks from their first dose, or 12 weeks following a positive Covid-19 test result – whichever is later.
