COVID-19 Booster Update for Immunocompromised Patients

COVID-19 Booster Update for Immunocompromised Patients

The information below is taken directly from a HSE Partner Pack sent to the Irish Kidney Association this morning.

COVID-19 booster for people with weak immune systems:

People who have a weak immune system, also called immunocompromised, can now get a booster dose. People in this group were offered a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and can now get a booster dose if it has been 3 months since their third dose. See below for information on how to get your booster dose – you can use any of the options outlined in the next section.

COVID-19 vaccine booster

People aged 16 and older can get their COVID-19 vaccine booster dose now. Find more information on the different options you have to get your vaccine booster here. You can book your own booster appointment for many vaccination centres online through the HSE website using the online self-scheduler here. You can also get your booster at many pharmacies and you’ll find a list on HSE.ie here. Some GPs are also vaccinating their patients.

You need to wait at least 3 months (90 days) after your vaccine course before you can get a booster dose. If you have had COVID-19 since you were vaccinated you should get your booster dose at least 3 months after your positive result.

Please bring photo ID that shows your date of birth to your appointment or walk-in clinic.
