From the age of 40 and up, everyone in Denmark will receive a booster dose of the corona vaccine by New Year, the country’s National Board of Health stated on Monday.
“It is necessary to get extra immunity in relation to the omicron variant,” the director of the National Board of Health, Søren Brostrøm, said during a press conference.
So far, 1.2 million people in Denmark have received a booster dose, the newspaper Berlingske reports.
The EMA has approved a booster dose from Moderna and Pfizer six months after the second dose has been administered. But now, people in Denmark will get it sooner, i.e., around 4.5 months after the second dose, according to DR.
