Health Minister Zahid Maleque has said that the health authorities will start administering booster shots of the Covid-19 vaccine for frontline workers as well as people aged 60 and above on Sunday against the backdrop of the rapid transmission of the new variant Omicron.

Earlier, the minister stated that only people aged 60 or above would get the booster dose.   

The National Technical Advisory Committee (NTAC) has also recommended starting a procedure to administer booster doses for the vulnerable section of the population.
