British Health Minister Sajid Javid has revealed the government’s autumn-winter plan to deal with the pandemic crisis, which includes a number of measures to prevent the need for further lockdowns.

His comments come shortly after UK officials gave the green light to offer a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to those at risk and anyone over 50 six months after their second dose.

The UK Joint Committee on Immunization and Immunization has recommended a booster vaccination with a vaccine from Pfizer Inc (NYSE: PFE) – BioNTech SE (NASDAQ: BNTX) or half a dose of Moderna Company (NASDAQ: mRNA).

The National Health Service is expected to start doing so next week. Separately, all children aged 12 to 15 years in England will be offered a dose of the vaccine from Pfizer-BioNTech.

CNBC reports that Prime Minister Boris Johnson will provide more information on the country’s fall-winter Covid plan at a press conference in Downing Street this afternoon.

The majority of younger adults will not receive their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine until late summer or early fall. The benefit of booster vaccination for this group will be evaluated later.
