3rd Vaccination Advice for Immunosuppressed Patients

Oct 21, 2021

The Ministry of Health has released guidance that immunosuppressed patients are eligible for a 3rd primary dose of the COVID-19 vaccination due to evidence that immunosuppressed patients develop less response to the standard two doses.

We have received a large volume of inquiries about eligibility for the 3rd primary dose vaccine which or team are working their way through.Thank you for your patience as we work through the most urgent.

Patients who meet the eligibility criteria will be sent the Ministry of Health consent form paperwork and prescription by email.

Once you receive your paperwork, please make an appointment with your GP or at a vaccination centre or pharmacy for your third dose.
 
For further information on the Third Primary Dose Clinical Guidance, visit the Ministry of Health website.
 
If you have any other questions, please email covidinfo@canopycancercare.co.nz as the Canopy triage phone line is only for urgent clinical advice.
