Repeat vaccination against corona

Helmie GroenHealth news, news

The Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport has advised offering a repeat vaccination against corona in the autumn. The reason for this is a possible increase in infections in the autumn. Although this is not easy to predict, it must be taken into account. Vaccination helps against serious illness and hospitalization and reduces the chance that the virus will be passed on to others. It is important to get a repeat shot for the elderly from 60 years of age and medical risk groups that run an increased risk of serious illness and death due to SARS-CoV-2 infection. In addition, healthcare employees who have contact with patients and clients are also offered a repeat jab against corona.
After these groups have been invited and given the opportunity to make an appointment, the repeat shot is offered to anyone aged 12-59 who wants it. The interval of 3 months after the last corona vaccination or corona infection remains, as does the 15 minutes waiting period after the vaccination.
The intended start of the new vaccination round is mid-September 2022.
