Covid-19: Four month booster shots available for all after regulation amendment

From Morning Report, 7:11 am on 24 December 2021

A Government move to reduce the time needed before people can get their Covid-19 booster shot has sparked confusion.

The Government announced on Tuesday that the waiting period between the second and booster shots would reduce, in January, from six months to four.

Whether it was to begin immediately, or on 5 January, wasn't clear, until a regulation amendment yesterday gave the go-ahead.
