Is there an age limit for booster doses?

According to the Deputy Minister of Health, Tamar Gabunia, the age limit for taking the booster dose of the coronavirus vaccine may be removed.

"The current regulation regarding boosters is that anyone over the age of 50, as well as people who have a chronic illness, can go to a vaccination facility today if it has been six months since their second vaccination. They can be vaccinated with the vaccine with which the first two vaccinations were given or replace the first two vaccines with the third booster dose "Pfizer."

There is still debate this week whether it is advisable to remove the age limit because, for example, in smokers, the effectiveness of the booster dose is very high, and it will be very difficult for us to separate the smoker from non-smokers. We can recommend that if a person has any concomitant disease, he should take a booster dose, and in agreement with the doctor, a person of any age should be able to make this decision on their own," said Tamar Gabunia.
