National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI) is expected to meet in the last week of November to discuss the problem of delivering booster doses for COVID-19 immunization.

As research currently shows that vaccine-derived immunity is not permanent, government experts are also likely to issue a detailed policy on delivering extra doses soon. The government's aim, though, is to vaccinate all adults first.
