UK looks to kick start programme for booster shots ahead of winter

  • Those aged 50 and older should be given a booster shot
  • Third dose should not be given until 6 months after second shot
  • Preference is that Pfizer vaccine is used for booster shot
  • Alternatively a half-dose of Moderna vaccine

With the UK being among the frontrunners in the vaccine race earlier in the year, they will also be among the case example for the need/efficacy of booster shots. Just something to keep an eye on in the next episode in dealing with the pandemic.
