The Dutch health council has recommended giving booster vaccines against coronavirus to around 200,000 people with immune disorders.
Family doctors and medical specialists should decide which patients should be included in the first round of booster shots, which is intended to give extra protection to people such as transplant patients who are not sufficiently covered by two doses.
The government’s advisory body said a third dose was not necessary for the general population at the moment.
‘As soon as there is a downward trend in the effectiveness of vaccines against serious disease, booster vaccination should be considered,’ it said in guidance published on Tuesday.
