JustSayYes - 9th October 2021

9 October 2021 - European Day for Organ Donation and Transplantation

“JustSayYes” – Let people know you are a donor – this is the slogan of the 2021 edition of the European Day for Organ Donation and Transplantation, which aims at raising awareness about organ, tissue and cell donation and the importance for people to make their wishes known to their loved ones.

On this occasion, the European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines & HealthCare (EDQM) of the Council of Europe is leading an online campaign (#JustSayYesEODD).

One single donor can save up to eight lives through organ donation and save or improve more than 100 lives through tissue donation! In 2020, 35 529 organ transplants were performed in Europe, while 43 183 new patients were added to a waiting list. 

COVID-19 Vaccine Update - 8/10/2021

Additional COVID-19 vaccination dose for those who are immunocompromised

Having a weak immune system puts you at higher risk of serious illness if you get COVID-19. Getting vaccinated will give you some protection against this. 

The Mater Hospital has identified all heart and lung transplant recipients who need an additional dose. Transplants will receive a HSE text message with an appointment date and time for their 3rd dose vaccine.

These additional doses will be given through HSE vaccination centre near you, or your hospital if you’re an inpatient. 

 GPs may also vaccinate some transplants, perhaps with the Flu vaccine on the same day..
