Chris Seeks Clarity Regarding Safety Timescales Between Vaccinations
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what the shortest time is in which an unvaccinated person can receive two covid-19 vaccinations and a booster so that they are protected to the maximum extent from the omicron variant; and if he will make a statement.
The shortest time for an individual aged 18 or over who is not severely immunosuppressed to receive two primary dose COVID-19 vaccinations and a booster would be approximately five months.
The dose interval between a booster dose and second dose was changed from six months to a minimum of three months at that point, to enable maximum protection from the Omicron variant.
