He said any individual above 20 years of age who have received the first two vaccine doses can obtain the booster shot from the nearest hospital three months after the second vaccine dose.
Dr. Gunawardana urged the public to ensure they receive the booster shot in order to prevent the rapid spread of the Omicron variant.
He said thus far more than 40 cases have been identified to have contracted the Omicron variant.
