The health ministry on Wednesday issued new advice on booster vaccinations against Covid-19 for adults.

The health ministry’s national advisory committee on vaccination recommended the use of VidPrevtyn Beta vaccine as a booster dose for adults who received an mRNA or adenoviral vector vaccines.

The advice on Sanofi Pasteur’s vaccine came after evaluating the recommendation of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) regarding vaccines against Covid-19.

EMA granted a marketing authorisation for the vaccine on November 10, 2022.

“This vaccine helps to enhance immune responses and prevent Covid-19 caused by SARS-CoV-5,” the ministry said, stressing that receiving a booster dose vaccine to preventing coronavirus disease is optional.

VidPrevtyn Beta contains a version of a protein found on the surface of SARS-CoV-2, the spike protein of the virus that causes Covid-19, which has been produced in the laboratory.

According to the recommendations, there should be an interval of four months after previous vaccination.

Beneficiaries will be able to receive the jab through the vaccination centres operating in all districts following a telephone appointment. To receive the vaccination, an identification document and a vaccination card must be presented.
