AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – The Netherlands’ Health Council on Tuesday recommended that adults aged 60 and older who have been previously been vaccinated against COVID-19 also receive booster shots.

The advice comes amid a major surge in new coronavirus cases in the Netherlands. The council’s recommendations are routinely adopted by the government.
