As of today, January 4, adults of all ages are eligible for a booster if at least five months have passed since their second coronavirus vaccine dose.
Until now, a third dose was only available for this group six months after receiving a second vaccine dose.
Security forces against compulsory vaccinations

Representatives of Initiative 21, which is a group protesting against compulsory vaccination as such, said on Monday that altogether around 14,000 people have signed petitions against mandatory vaccines for any group of the population.
