Quick Glance: Epidemiologist Urges Covid-19 Booster Vaccines
  • Booster vaccines are crucial to curb the fifth wave of Covid-19, according to epidemiologist Michael Baker.

  • Low uptake is due to lack of awareness about eligibility for boosters.

  • Those over 30 can get a booster if it's been over six months since their last dose or infection, says the Otago University professor.

  • Boosters are especially vital for those over 75, Māori and Pasifika over 65, or individuals with underlying health conditions, Baker emphasizes.
