Ministry gives green light to booster shots for 18 and older

Details will be announced in the coming days


The proposal of the Minister of Health, Mr. Michalis Hadjipandelas, was approved at today's meeting by the Council of Ministers, regarding the granting of a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to persons aged 18 and over, provided that a period of six months has elapsed since completion of their vaccination regimen (from the 2nd dose of the Pfizer / BioNTech, AstraZeneca, and Moderna vaccines or from the Johnson & Johnson monosodium vaccine).

The decision of the Council of Ministers comes after a proposal to the Minister of Health by the National Advisory Committee on Vaccination, which, in a recent session, recommended the start of the vaccination process with a booster dose of the entire adult population.

More details on the exact start date and how the booster vaccination procedure will be performed will be announced in the coming days.
