Britain adds Pfizer vaccine for next COVID booster shot campaign

LONDON, Sept 3 (Reuters) - Britain said on Saturday it had added a Pfizer vaccine to its COVID-19 booster shot programme for the coming months.

"Along with the Moderna bivalent vaccine, this safe and effective vaccine will target two different variants – Omicron and the original COVID strain," Health Secretary Steve Barclay said in a statement. (Reporting by Andy Bruce; Editing by Emelia Sithole-Matarise)
