Abstract: We show that, if $ L$ is an extremal Type II lattice of rank $ 40$ or $ 80$, then $ L$ is generated by its vectors of norm $ \operatorname{min}(L)+2$. This sharpens earlier results of Ozeki, and the second author and Abel, which showed that such lattices $ L$ are generated by their vectors of norms $ \operatorname{min}(L)$ and $ \operatorname{min}(L)+2$.
