UK’s JCVI to Announce Decision of Expansion of Covid-19 Booster Shots


The Joint Committee on vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), an advisory body in United Kingdom on the vaccines has been expected to announce a decision that whether it is going to approve an expansion of the novel corona virus booster vaccine amid the concerns related to the spread of the new omicron covid-19 variant.

The decision from the JCVI can possibly see the cut of time between the second and third dose of the novel corona virus vaccines and the programme has also extended to a wider age group in the country, and currently the people, who are above 40 years of age have had a second dose just five months ago can also book a date for their booster dose of the vaccines.

The teachers and the students, who are 7 years of age and older are now being advised for wearing masks in the community areas outside the classroom in the United Kingdom, and they are going to become compulsory again on the public transport and in the shops, when the new quarantine rules return for the international travel till they receive a negative PCR test.
