LONDON (Reuters) - Britain is preparing for a revaccination programme against COVID-19, likely to run later this year and consist of a single booster dose, the government said in its plan to end coronavirus restrictions.

"The Government is planning for a revaccination campaign, which is likely to run later this year in autumn or winter," the document said.

"Any revaccination is likely to consist of a single 'booster' dose of a COVID-19 vaccine: the ideal booster may be a new vaccine specifically designed against a variant form of the virus."
