Individuals aged 12 & over with severe immunosuppression are now eligible for 3rd dose.
Patients aged 12 and over with severe immunosuppression are now recommended to receive a third primary dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. In light of the latest advise from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). The advise recommends that a third dose is given for individuals aged 12 and over with immunosuppression. This is being advised as a precautionary measure to increase you immunity level and provide a better vaccine response, based on studies and experience with other vaccines. It is part of your primary course of vaccination and is separate to a booster vaccination, which you will likely become eligible for in six months time, pending further notice.
The recommendation is at least 8 weeks after your second dose. Your third dose may be at the Hospital where you receive treatment, your local Primary Care Network or at another site they direct you to.
