STOCKHOLM—Sweden will give a fourth shot of COVID-19 vaccine to people aged 65 and above to boost their defenses against the disease, the health agency said on Monday.

“For people aged 65 and over, it is now four months since the previous vaccine dose, and the protective effect of the vaccine diminishes over time,” the Health Agency said in a statement.

Sweden had previously offered a fourth jab to people aged 80 or older.

Sweden abolished almost all restrictions in early March.
