In view of the rapid spread of the Covid-19 Omicron strain in Europe, the State Council of Immunization has reduced the interval between primary and booster vaccination. The booster can now be received three months after the primary vaccination, according to the National Health Service's information December 21.

The booster vaccine will be available three months after the second dose as of Tuesday, December 21.

NVD calls on residents to receive the booster vaccine without delay, especially for those in risk groups.

Conditions for the receipt of a booster vaccine:

  • two months after the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine;
  • three months after the second vaccine of Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca), Comirnaty (Pfizer/BioNTech) or Spikevax (Moderna);
  • three months after the single shot for persons who have recovered from Covid-19
  • for persons who have compromised immunity and have already been vaccinated with three doses – six months after the third shot.

People aged 12 to 17 are currently not eligible for a booster.
