PARIS, Nov 25 (Reuters) - French Health Minister Olivier Veran confirmed on Thursday that COVID-19 booster shots will be made available to all adults starting this week-end, with the government hoping that the move will help contain a new wave of the disease.

Veran also said during a news conference that the delay between a full vaccination programme and a booster shot will be shortened to five months instead of six. (Reporting by Benoit Van Overstraeten and Sudip Kar-Gupta; Editing by Dominique Vidalon)
