Health Ministry shortens term for booster shots on EMA recommendation

The Czech Health Ministry has changed the conditions for administering Covid-19 booster shots, shortening the interval from eight to six months after primary inoculation, effective immediately. The move comes on the recommendation of the European drug regulator EMA. Over 800,000 people in the Czech Republic are now eligible to get a booster shot. By the end of October it will be over a million. The shots are recommended to high-risk groups and people over 60 but are available free of charge to all.
