At this moment fourth coronavirus vaccinations are given for the following groups in Turku

  • for medical risk groups of everyone aged 18
  • for those over 60 years old

According to the new guidelines issued by THL (9 August 2022), having had the disease still replaces one dose of the coronavirus vaccine.

The 4th vaccine dose may also be administered for travel or other necessary reasons (there may be a variety of reasons), even if a person is not in the group who are recommended the 4th vaccination.

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.
