COVID-19

Booster Shots Probably Not Needed, Lancet Says

Additional COVID-19 vaccine booster shots are not needed for the general population, a group of international scientists has said in a new report in The Lancet medical journal.


The scientists said more evidence was needed to justify boosters, and that vaccines remain highly effective against severe symptoms of COVID-19, across all the main virus variants including Delta. They said vaccine doses should be prioritised to people around the world still waiting for a jab.


WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has called on countries to avoid giving out extra COVID jabs until the end of the year, as the UN health agency urges all nations to vaccinate at least 10 percent of their populations by the end of this month, and at least 40 percent by the end of this year.
