Specific group of patients will receive an invitation for 3rd corona vaccination in October

De Bilt

From October 6, a specific group of people with a severe immune disorder (immunely compromised) will receive their invitation for a 3rd vaccination against COVID-19. This concerns patients who are being treated by a medical specialist for a specific condition or who are prescribed certain medicines.

Eligible people can expect their invitation from October 6 to the end of October via the hospital where they are being treated. Only people with an invitation can get a 3rd vaccination from the GGD Municipal Health Service.

Specific group of patients

Many people with an immune disorder are already sufficiently protected with 2 COVID-19 vaccinations. But within specific groups there are patients who may not be well protected against COVID-19 after 2 vaccinations. This has been shown by recent research. That is why a 3rd vaccination is recommended for these people. It is expected that 200,000-400,000 patients with a serious immune disorder are being treated by a medical specialist.
