Vaccination intervals should be checked

The Finnish institute for health and welfare strongly recommends a third dose of the vaccine for immunocompromised people over 12 years of age at least 2 months after the second dose.

For those over 60 years of age and at risk, a third dose of the vaccine may be given 3 to 4 months after the second vaccination.

For 18-60 year olds who are not at risk, a third dose of the vaccine may be given 4 to 6 months after the second dose.

The person booking the appointment must make sure that the required time has elapsed since the second vaccination.
