Gov ramps up booster vaccine rollout

Tue, 30 Nov 2021


The COVID-19 booster vaccination programme is to be expanded in the Island to increase defences for individuals and the population against the Omicron variant, following a change in advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.

The move will see booster jabs offered to all adults from the age of 18, with the rollout continuing in age order giving priority to older adults and those in Covid-19 at-risk groups. In addition, boosters will shortly be offered from three months after an individual’s second dose.

Boosters are currently recommended for adults aged 40 and over, frontline health and care workers and people with certain health conditions.

The decision to make boosters available to all adults follows the latest recommendation from the JCVI.
