UK medical regulator approves Pfizer's and AstraZeneca's booster shots Updated: 2021-09-10 07:08:06 KST

The British medical regulator on Thursday gave the green light to booster shots of Pfizer's and AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccines saying they are safe and effective.
The actual roll out will be determined by the government as Britain's Joint Committee for Vaccination and Immunisation is looking into whether booster shots for the elderly and vulnerable are needed, with planning underway for a booster programme that could begin this month.
This comes as Italy's medicines agency AIFA also approved the third shot for those vulnerable to COVID-19.
The group includes the elderly, immunocompromised, or front-line medical workers.
