Autumn booster: JCVI recommendation
The JCVI has provided interim advice to the Government recommending that the autumn 2022 COVID booster is offered to:
- residents in a care home for older adults and staff
- frontline health and social care workers
- all those 65 years of age and over
- adults aged 16 to 64 years who are in a clinical risk group
The JCVI is considering further evidence about the details of the programme and the value of booster vaccinations to other groups. Further details, such as definitions for the groups specified will be published at a later date.
