The information requested is not available as no such explanation was required. The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) updated its interim advice of 30 June 2021 on the categorisation of groups eligible for vaccination in the COVID-19 vaccine booster programme when further evidence became available. The JCVI published its final advice on 14 September based on the latest available evidence.
