  • Fifth coronavirus vaccinations in Turku: the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) recommends new booster doses, that is, fifth coronavirus vaccine doses, for those aged 12 or over whose immune system is severely weakened. Read more: Fifth coronavirus vaccinations in Turku
  • According to the new guidelines issued by THL (9 August 2022), having had the disease still replaces one dose of the coronavirus vaccine, i.e. if you have been vaccinated 3 times and have had the coronavirus disease at some point of the pandemic, you do not need the 4th vaccine. 

    As the influenza vaccinations start in October and November, the number of previous vaccines will no longer be counted. Instead, everyone aged over 65, people in medical risk groups aged over 18, and people with severe immune deficiencies aged over 12 are recommended to get the coronavirus vaccine together with the influenza vaccine. A booster can be administered if 3 months have passed since the previous vaccination.
