Colombia recommends 2nd COVID-19 booster shot

 BOGOTA:Colombia's vaccine advisory committee recommended a second vaccine booster dose against COVID-19 for people aged 12-49, but only under medical order, Health Minister Fernando Ruiz said Friday.

 The second booster shot, or a fourth vaccine dose, is currently available to immunocompromised people, those with transplants and comorbidity, as well as seniors over 50 years old.

 "The committee of experts recommended continuing the application of the third dose (first booster) to cover populations that have not received it, and maintaining the fourth dose for the population with comorbidity," the official said.


  Ruiz urged older adults and children to complete their vaccination schedule, since those that are not immunized are at the greatest risk.

 According to the latest Health Ministry data, the South American country has registered 13,810 new COVID-19 cases and 24 deaths in the last week, bringing the totals to 6,131,657 and 139,918 respectively.
