The number of coronavirus patients in the country has been declining sharply in the last few days. On the other hand, in view of the declining number of patients, the central government has now lifted all restrictions on Kovid. Anyway, now there is another good news for everyone. Everyone over the age of 18 will now be given a booster dose of the corona vaccine. From April 10, everyone will be given a booster (precautionary) dose of the corona vaccine.
Individuals over the age of 18 who have taken two doses of the corona vaccine and who have completed 9 months of receiving the second dose of the vaccine will be given a booster dose of the corona vaccine. However, a booster dose of the corona vaccine can be obtained at private vaccination centers, the health ministry said. In addition, the booster dose will continue to be free at government vaccination centers for health care workers and citizens above 60 years of age who are eligible for the first and second doses of the corona vaccine, the health ministry said in a statement.
