Additional COVID vaccination for severely immunocompromised people

Oct. 28, 2021


Additional COVID vaccine for severely immunocompromised people

Following the announcement last week there has been a flurry of inquiries about additional vaccinations for those who are immunocompromised.

Please note that the criteria for "severely immunocompromised" has been very tightly defined and very few of our population will meet it.

You can check your eligibility in the document below. If you believe you are eligible for a third dose please contact us, we will send you the criteria so you can double check your eligibility, and you will be booked in with a GP to discuss this. Your GP needs to do some paperwork and prescribe the third dose of the vaccine. This consult will be funded if you are eligible. Only if you have been through this process can you be booked for a third vaccine. Please do not book a vaccine without having the appointment with your GP.
