LThe Higher Health Council gives the green light to administer a third dose of a coronavirus vaccine to all residents of nursing homes and to all people over 85 years of age. It is now up to politicians to decide, Het Nieuwsblad and Gazet van Antwerpen report Tuesday.
A working group within the council has already been considering the question of a third dose to better protect the population for some time.
According to political sources cited by the Flemish media, the Higher Health Council does recommend a third injection for people in nursing homes. But what is more surprising also for all people over 85 years of age. Dirk Ramaekers, chair of the vaccination task force, confirms these board recommendations.
On Wednesday morning, the various health ministers will have to decide.
