CONCERN: Dr Alam Yoosuff says many people aged 65 and over coming through his clinic each day are yet to receive their COVID booster shot.
NEXT PHASE: The government's expert vaccine advisory group has approved a fourth dose of the COVID vaccine for over 65s ahead of winter.

I think we should have communicated this as a third dose and important component to complete the full course of vaccination.
