Swiss authorities urge citizens to get Covid booster shots

Swiss authorities urge citizens to get Covid booster shots

Moscow, Oct 6 (UNI) The Swiss Federal Council on Thursday urged citizens aged 16 and over to get revaccinated against COVID-19 starting from October 10 due to an increase in the number of reported cases.
"From Monday, 10 October 2022, a further COVID-19 booster will be available to the public. The FOPH [Federal Office of Public Health] and the Federal Commission for Vaccination (FCV) recommend the booster primarily for persons at especially high risk and health professionals. However, the vaccine is also recommended for anyone aged over 16 years," the council said in a statement.
Switzerland is witnessing a noticeable increase in both the number of registered SARS-CoV-2 infections and the proportion of positive tests, but the number of intensive care beds occupied by COVID-19 patients and the number of reported deaths remain at a very low level, the statement added.
