There's relief for doctors at news they'll be able to get a booster shot from the end of this month. 

Anyone over 18 who's been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 for six months will be able to get a third jab. 

Association of Salaried Medical Specialists executive director, Sarah Dalton, told Kate Hawkesby she heard from a lot of members who were concerned it wouldn't be until next year. 

“Certainly, some of our members, particularly working in EDs who are seeing Covid-positive people every day were talking about getting the third shot privately.”
