The experts stressed they were not recommending an additional so-called booster dose for the population at large.

It is on the verge of deciding whether to give emergency use listing to India's Bharat Biotech jab.

It also said that for people fully immunised with Sinovac and Sinopharm vaccines, an additional third dose of the same jab "should be offered to persons aged 60 and above".

A different vaccine "may also be considered based on vaccine supply and access considerations".

SAGE added that when implementing this recommendation, countries should initially aim at maximising two-dose coverage in that population, and thereafter administer the third dose, starting in the oldest age groups.
