Second doses of AstraZeneca

 

The following is the recommendation of NIAC.

If you have already received your first dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine and are:

 

Under 60 - without high risk or a very high-risk medical condition. You should get your second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine 16 weeks after your first dose. This has increased from 12 weeks. The extra time is to allow for more research evidence to become available. - with a very high risk, or high-risk condition that puts you at severe risk of COVID, you should get your second dose 12 weeks after your first dose as planned.

 

60 and older - you should get your second dose 12 weeks after your first dose, as planned. AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine information for patients and the public.

 

Based on the NIAC recommendation and to explain why the benefits of getting the AstraZeneca vaccine continue to outweigh the risks for those people for whom the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine is recommended. For people over 60, the risk of this very rare side effect is very low. Information for the public on the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine is available on hse.ie. Up until 7 April, the Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA) have gotten 1 report of a case of this rare clotting condition that may be linked to AstraZeneca vaccine out of the 204,270 AstraZeneca doses given. The HPRA are investigating this report.

 

Let’s fight this together. Keep safe!
