The NHS in the UK has announced that Sunday, February 12 will be the last day for most UK adults to receive a booster jab for COVID-19.
The offer of initial vaccinations to healthy five to 49-year-olds is set to be withdrawn in favour of a more targeted approach in 2023, however, the UK government has not yet made any announcement about future policy.
According to The Independent, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation advised that the booster jabs will only be offered to people considered to be at risk of serious illness after next week's deadline.
On the other hand, The Guardian reported that the JCVI also advised that all adults should receive a booster jab to help prevent the spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.
The UK government has already advised that there should be another autumn vaccination campaign later this year and potentially a spring campaign for the most vulnerable.
