All national dailies wrote that a Health Ministry experts’ panel largely agreed on Thursday to make COVID-19 booster shots available to anyone who received their second dose of vaccine at least eight months ago. The panel will make a formal decision on the matter at a meeting next month. The panel is also planning to start administering booster shots to healthcare workers in December and the elderly and other people in January. The ministry will also decide whether to allow people to receive booster shots of vaccines that differ from the ones they received for their initial doses.
