The Danish government has given the country's residents the opportunity to receive the fourth dose of coronavirus vaccine, DW reports with a reference to Danish Minister of Health Magnus Heunicke.

Booster vaccination will be offered to people most vulnerable to infection. Health authorities will contact them in the coming days.

At the same time, official Copenhagen reduced the validity of the so-called health passport. Now those who have received two vaccinations against Covid-19, this document is valid for five months after the second dose of the vaccine instead of seven. The third vaccine, given to 54.6% of the population, means an unlimited passport.

The Danish authorities have also announced the resumption of cultural institutions. No more than 500 people will be allowed to take part in the events.

As it was reported earlier, frequent revaccinations for coronavirus can negatively affect a person's immune system. According to the European Medicines Agency (EMA), booster doses every four months can weaken the immune system and fatigue people. The agency recommends instead leaving more time between revaccination programs and tying them to start the cold season in each country.
