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..
