NewSpikevax jab set to be introduced in UK

Manx Care says it's currently finalising plans for its autumn Covid-19 booster campaign and will shortly publicise its plans.

It comes in response to the UK's green light for a new booster jab which provides protection against the Omicron variant and previous strains of the virus.

The UK programme will target the over 50s.

A new Spikevax jab has been manufactured by US firm Moderna which looks set to be used.
