(Bloomberg) — Germany is poised to clamp down on people who aren’t vaccinated against Covid-19 and drastically curtail social contacts to ease pressure on increasingly stretched hospitals.
In one of her final acts as chancellor, Angela Merkel will hold talks with Germany’s 16 regional premiers later on Thursday at which they’re expected to agree on new curbs including allowing only people who are vaccinated or recovered into restaurants, theaters and non-essential stores.
Jersey’s most vulnerable people will be offered a fourth Covid vaccine.
Officials say anyone who has a problem with their immune system will be contacted.
It comes as the vaccine team outlines plans for people to get their booster jabs.
From Friday, those over 40 will be able to book appointments as long as they had their last dose more than three months ago.
People aged under 40 will have to wait until January.
