Those in the UK under the age of 40 should expect to be eligible for the booster dose of the progesterone vaccine sooner than initially expected due to the risk of spreading the new corona virus variant Omigron. Professor Anthony Horton of the British Vaccine and Immunization Commission (JCVI) told BBC Radio 4, The Guardian reported on Sunday.

When asked if 18- to 39-year-olds should be prepared for an extension of the booster dose, Horton said: “I think this is a very good and strong argument for increasing antibody levels, thus extending the age limit and accelerating the booster vaccine and reducing the interval between the second dose and the acceptable booster dose.” . “Adults over the age of 18 will be given a booster booster dose earlier than initially expected,” he added.

The new variant of Omigran was first announced this week by the Republic of South Africa (JAR). Since then, it has been recorded in South Africa, Hong Kong, Israel and other countries in Belgium and Germany. Many countries are currently taking travel measures to prevent the spread of this option.

Due to concerns about Omigran diversity, Britain put on the Red List the ten South African countries of the Republic of South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho, Ezwatini (formerly Swaziland), Angola, Mozambique, Malawi and Zambia. Such an addition means that all travelers from these countries must arrive in the UK and be isolated at the hotel for ten days.
