The British Health Service NHS is going to offer a third shot to anyone aged 12 and over with a weakened immune system. That’s what British newspaper The Guardian writes.
According to the newspaper, this concerns half a million people with a severely weakened immune system, for example as a result of HIV infection or drug use. For these people, two shots do not provide sufficient protection against the coronavirus. Also, people with a weakened immune system are more likely to have a more serious disease course in case of infection. The third shot should provide more protection.
Earlier today, France started giving an extra shot to the vulnerable. French people over 65 are also eligible for the third doze.
