The UK will offer a third dose of the vaccine Corona virus About half a million people with very weakened immune systems. British Health Minister Sajida Javida was quoted by AFP on Wednesday. Javed said the National Health Service (NHS) “may have less protection against the virus after the first two doses.”

The announcement came shortly after the UK’s Vaccine and Immunization Commission (JCVI) recommended a third-dose vaccine on Wednesday for people over 12 years of age with leukemia, advanced HIV infection or recent organ transplant surgery. The JCVI also states that the third dose should be given priority to the mRNA vaccine that is not made from Astrogenogen, which uses virus vector technology.

According to the AFP, the JCVI announcement comes at a time when the flu vaccination is likely to take place in early September, at a time when the British government is considering adopting several countries that plan to provide a booster dose of the Covit vaccine to the entire population. Javed also said that vaccination with the “third primary dose of the vaccine” is not equivalent to the booster dose. According to him, the British government is planning a booster dose starting in September.

Two weeks ago, the World Health Organization (WHO) criticized rich countries for abruptly administering third-dose COVID-19 vaccines, but millions of people worldwide have not yet received their first dose.
