The new COVID-19 booster shot is recommended for everyone over the age of 65, people over the age of 18 who belong to medical risk groups, and people over the age of 12 who are severely immunocompromised. If you part of these groups, you can get the booster shot during the same appointment as the influenza vaccination at the vaccination unit in Hatanpää and at health centres - book only one vaccination appointment. If you want only the COVID-19 booster shot, you can get it at the vaccination unit in Hatanpää or by appointment at your health centre. You can get the booster if at least three months have passed since the previous vaccination or infection, regardless of how many vaccines you have received or how many times you have contracted COVID-19.
Note! People aged 60-64 years do not need a fourth dose if they have had coronavirus infection and received three doses of the vaccine. For people under 60 years of age, the recommendation is three doses of vaccine. The infection is equivalent to one dose of vaccine.
