COVID-19 Booster dose: Government makes major statement regarding booster dose, no longer requiring a 9-month delay

The COVID-19 precautionary dose gap for individuals over the age of 18 has been lowered from the previous 9 months to 6 months by the Union Health Ministry.

Corona Booster Dose News: On Wednesday, the central government made a significant revelation about the continuing vaccination campaign against Covid. This comes as corona cases in the nation are on the rise. The duration between booster Covid-19 dosages was cut from nine months to six months by the central government. This follows a recommendation made by the Standing Technical Sub-Committee (STSC) of NTAGI last month to shorten the interval between the precautionary and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to six months.


Important decision on booster dose made by the central government

According to the Union Health Ministry, the recommendation received the support of the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization. In light of this, it has been determined that the precautionary dose for all beneficiaries in the age range of 18 to 59 years may be given at a private immunization facility six months or 26 weeks following the date of the second dose.

The states received orders from the Union Health Secretary

According to a letter from Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan to the states, the COVID-19 precautionary dosage gap for adults over the age of 18 has been lowered from the previous nine months to six months.


The elderly will receive a free vaccination.

Additionally, it was stated in the letter from the Union Health Secretary that after six months, frontline workers (FLWs), health workers (HCWs), and seniors over 60 years old should all be moved to government immunization centers. A Free Covid booster dose will be provided. Prior to the nine-month waiting time required by the destination country’s regulations, the government let residents heading abroad to receive a booster dose of the vaccination in May.
