South Africa plans to offer additional Covid-19 booster vaccines to people at highest risk of complications associated with the disease. 
The government intends making top-up inoculations available to qualifying adults a minimum of 180 days after they had their last shot, Foster Mohale, a spokesman for the health department, said in an emailed statement Wednesday. Those aged 18 to 49 are currently eligible to get three vaccines and those 50 and older four shots.
