Another jab is on the agenda for those most at risk of serious illness from Covid.

The additional booster shot has been recommended by the Ministry of Health vaccine advisory group and is intended for the elderly, aged and disability care residents and severely immunocompromised people over the age of 16.

Potentially that is several hundred thousand people - but the final list is yet to be decided.

The booster will be given six months after the last one. Covid Minister Chris Hipkins talks to Lisa Owen.
