Adults aged 16 or older will be prioritised alongside priority group 6. This new guidance comes in light of research suggesting that the COVID-19 may reduce the risk of a vaccinated person passing the illness onto others. By vaccinating household members, the hope is that this will limit the spread of COVID-19 to people who are at more at risk of serious disease, thus improving the protection already provided by the first dose of the vaccine.
