Health Minister Chris Fearne has announced that Malta will offer a COVID-19 booster shot to everyone aged 12 and over.
The announcement came in a news conference on Friday after revealing the country registered 40 new COVID-19 cases, the highest daily record in six weeks.
At the time of writing, the shot is being rolled out to the over 70s, and plans to offer it to teachers and healthcare workers will begin as of this coming Monday.
In the meantime, Fearne said the over 60s will be offered the booster shot from December 6, while the over 45s will be invited to take the vaccine from the first week of January.
However, he did not specify the timeline for those under the age of 45.
