Sumary of Covid booster jabs extended to people aged 40 to 49, says JCVI:

  • Immediately after the JCVI gave the green light for boosters for over-40s, the health secretary, Sajid Javid, said the advice had been accepted in England.
  • The move comes after a study by the UK Health Security Agency found that boosters gave more than 90% protection in people over 50. The research showed that two weeks after receiving a booster dose, protection against symptomatic infection was 93.1% in those who had initially received Oxford/AstraZeneca and 94.0% for Pfizer/BioNTech.
  • ”Speaking at the same briefing as Lim, England’s deputy chief medical officer, Prof Jonathan Van-Tam, warned that even with the extension of boosters, intended to tackle potentially waning immunity from earlier jabs, winter could be a difficult time with Covid.
  • Others who are eligible include frontline health and care workers, or those who care for someone at high risk from Covid.
