The UK has launched the third dose of the vaccine for other ages, and the vaccine will be given to those over 40 years of age.

People in the UK over the age of 40 can get the booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine starting Monday. This was announced by the British health regulators.

So far, only people over the age of 50 in the country are eligible for the booster vaccine. As a third vaccine, the UK offers vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna. The cnbc.com portal reports about it.

Significant speed

There were 36,517 new corona virus infections reported in the UK on Sunday, up six per cent in the last seven days from the previous week.

Jonathan Van-Tom, deputy chief medical officer for the UK, said the booster program was progressing “At significant speeds”.

Greatly reducing fears about being admitted to the hospital

Van-Tom said the third dose reduces the number of infections by ten times, the number of hospital admissions by 18.7 times and the death rate by 14.7 times, according to Israeli data, which launched booster doses in July.

“So, if the booster program is successful, I hope we can really reduce the fear of hospital admissions and deaths on COVID-19 for millions of people this Christmas and later this winter.” Van-Tom said.
