Fifth doses of COVID-19 vaccine for persons who are severely immunocompromised
In Tampere and Orivesi, the administration of fifth doses of COVID-19 vaccine to persons aged 12 or over with a severely weakened immune defence will begin in accordance with the recommendation of the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL). The fifth vaccine dose may be given when 4 - 6 months have passed after the fourth vaccination.
If a person aged 12 or over with a severely weakened immune defence has had COVID-19 and received four vaccines, they will not need the fifth vaccine at this point.
Vaccinations are given by appointment on weekdays at the health centres and during weekends at Hatanpää urgent care (Hatanpäänkatu 24, entry through the main entrance of the Hatanpää Hospital).
You can book an appointment online through the COVID-19 vaccinations page or by calling the health care counselling service on 03 5657 0023 (daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.). Residents of Orivesi may also book an appointment by calling the health centre appointment number: 03 5657 5777, Mon–Fri from 12 noon to 1 p.m.
