Covid vaccine boosters recommended for all adults


Ljubljana - Slovenia's national advisory committee on immunization has decided to recommend a booster shot of a vaccine against Covid-19 to all adults, that is everyone aged 18 or over.

The body has decided to expand the booster shot recommendation to all adults at its latest session after initially recommending boosters in particular to over 50-year-olds, particularly vulnerable people with chronic conditions regardless of their age, care home residents, family members of immunocompromised persons or vulnerable chronic patients and those exposed to the virus at their work.

Booster shots had been earlier also recommended to those who had been fully vaccinated with viral vector vaccines at least two months after they have been fully jabbed.

According to the National Institute of Public Health, more than 281,700 people in Slovenia have already received booster shots.
