Please keep in mind that you need two vaccinations to be protected. The second vaccine (booster) will be given 12 weeks after the first one. You will get the appointment for your booster vaccine when you receive the first vaccine.

If you received your first vaccine at the health centre, you will also be receiving your booster vaccination at the health centre.

If you received your first vaccine at the Ratina vaccination unit, you will also be receiving your booster vaccination at Ratina.

The place for booster vaccinations will be changed from Ratina to Messukeskus, because the Ratina vaccination unit will be closed in August.

If you have received your first vaccine at the vaccination unit of Messukeskus, you will be getting the booster vaccination at the Ratina vaccination unit.
