Sajid Javid: Immunocompromised people to receive third vaccine | Covid-19

our vaccine wall of defense has been a huge success we think so far it’s saved 105 000 lives and prevented some 24 million infections and today we’re going to go a step further by accepting the advice of the independent jcvi that anyone that is severely immuno-suppressed should be offered a third dose the reason that we are doing this is based on the advice of the jcvi and the data that they’ve seen it suggests that people in such a situation that are immunosuppressed they may not have the same level of protection from two doses that other people do that’s why we think it’s absolutely right that we top up their protection by offering this third dose as part of their primary vaccine schedule we’ve accepted the advice of the independent jcvi and they’ve been very clear that this third dose should be offered to anyone over the age of 12 that has a severely weak immune system and that’s exactly what we’re doing of course we keep this under review at all times and should their advice change at a later date to include a different group of people of course we would follow through on that advice
