    Vulnerable populations will soon be able to get a fourth Covid-19 vaccine, six months after the last


    Older people, residents in aged and disability care .... and immunocompromised people 16 and over, are included.

    The Medicines Act will be amended ro allow roll-out from mid-June, with most eligible from July.
