Covid: Booster jabs for over-50s expected to be announced
BBC says a UK-wide programme of booster jabs to help prevent Covid will be confirmed later, the BBC understands.
Ministers are expected to announce jabs for the over-50s as part of their Covid winter plan, after advice from the independent vaccine panel, the JCVI.
BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg said the booster would be a single dose of the Pfizer vaccine at least six months after a second dose.
The NHS began preparing for the booster programme in July.
