Immunocompromised To Be Offered Third Dose Of Covid-19 Vaccine From Next Week
People who are immunocompromised will be offered a third dose of a Covid-19 vaccine from next week.
Health care professionals will identify patients who need a third dose.
Kacey O’Riordan has this report for RedFM News:
“People who have a functioning immune system need just two shots of a COVID-19 vaccine to reach the required level of immune response. But those who have a compromised immune system such as certain cancer patients or people on certain medication require three shots to reach the required level of immune response. The HSE says it’s not the beginning of their general booster campaign. Consultants will identify patients who need a third job, and will start contacting them for Wednesday, with appointment starting on Friday.”
