The Covid-19 vaccine booster programme is to be extended to include healthy 40 to 49-year-olds, health officials have announced. The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) said all adults over the age of 40 should be offered a booster. It has also said that 16 and 17-year-olds should come forward for a second dose of the Pfizer jab. The expansion of the vaccination programme help limit the spread of the virus over winter. It comes as ministers urged people to get boosters when called in a bid to save Christmas.
