Cyprus to offer booster shots to all adults 18 and over

Andrew Cuomo

NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) — Cyprus says it will offer COVID-19 vaccination booster shots to all adults 18 and over. The decision comes less than two weeks after the east Mediterranean island nation expanded its booster shot drive to include everyone over 50. The only prerequisite to receive a booster shot is that six months needs to have elapsed since a person was fully vaccinated with either the Pfizer/BioNTech, AstraZeneca, Moderna or Johnson&Johnson vaccines. Cyprus has seen a rise in coronavirus infections in the last couple of weeks, and health experts say the increase is largely caused by those who haven’t been vaccinated. Around 80% of adults in Cyprus have been fully vaccinated.
