The covid booster shots have been making headlines a lot this year, and they managed to create multiple controversies involving who should get them and how often.
Their efficiency has been discussed a lot as well.
Now, it’s been revealed that BBC notes that health and frontline workers and people above 60 years old with comorbidities are currently eligible to take the jab.
The drive began as India battles a spike in Covid cases – this was reportedly fuelled by the Omicron variant of the coronavirus.
“Early studies from other countries have suggested that a booster vaccine may provide more protection against Omicron.”
BBC also reminds readers that the highly transmissive Omicron variant was first discovered in South Africa in November.
Since then, there are some countries have expanded their booster programs or shortened the gap between jabs to shore up protection against the variant.
BBC’s article also noted the following:
“In India, the booster shot – dubbed a “precaution dose” by Prime Minister Narendra Modi – will be the same vaccine that was given to a person for their first and second doses.”
