Coronavirus vaccinations in Espoo in autumn 2022
Booster doses based on the new recommendation administered from October to December
On 1 September, the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) issued a new recommendation regarding coronavirus vaccinations later in the autumn. Espoo’s plan is to offer an extensive round of booster doses to over 65-year-olds, over 18-year-olds who belong to risk groups and over 12-year-olds with a severely weakened immune system from October to December.
No rush to visit a vaccination site yet
Our aim is to offer coronavirus and influenza vaccines during the same appointment whenever it is possible.
The new THL recommendation, according to which a past coronavirus infection is no longer considered one vaccine dose, will not take effect until we start influenza vaccinations in Espoo around October-November.
At the moment, we offer vaccines under the same conditions as before:
- First and second doses to all over 5-year-olds
- Third doses to all over 18-year-olds
- Fourth doses to over 60-year-olds and over 18-year-olds who belong to risk groups
- Fifth doses to over 12-year-olds with a severely weakened immune system
