According to the WHO, older people are at high risk, as well as younger people who have other significant risk factors.

For them, the organization recommends an additional dose 6 or 12 months after the last dose.

The WHO has identified healthy children and young people as a "low priority" group and urged countries to consider factors such as disease burden before recommending vaccination for people in this category.
