Soite begins to give its per­son­nel a third dose of coro­n­avirus vaccine

Soite begins to give its per­son­nel a third dose of coro­n­avirus vac­cine on the 22nd of Sep­tem­ber 2021. Vac­cines are giv­en to social and health care per­son­nel who received their first vac­cine dos­es with a short inter­val of 3–4 weeks at the start of the year. 

Based on fol­low-up infor­ma­tion col­lect­ed in Fin­land and in oth­er coun­tries, the effect of vac­cine dos­es that have been giv­en with a short inter­val dimin­ish­es espe­cial­ly when it comes to pro­tec­tion against an infec­tion and a mild form of the dis­ease, although the pro­tec­tion against the seri­ous form of the dis­ease is still good. 

The Finnish Insti­tute for Health and Wel­fare THL, how­ev­er, does not rec­om­mend a third vac­cine dose for men under the age of 30 at this time. This restric­tion does not apply to a third vac­cine dose for severe­ly immuno­com­pro­mised per­sons. Myocardi­tis and peri­cardi­tis has been report­ed as a very rare adverse effect in per­sons who have received an mRNA vac­cine. As this risk main­ly con­cerns young men, THL has deemed it nec­es­sary accord­ing to the pre­cau­tion­ary prin­ci­ple to leave men under the age of 30, exclud­ing per­sons who are severe­ly immuno­com­pro­mised, out­side its rec­om­men­da­tion con­cern­ing a third vac­cine dose. 

Those who have received their first vac­cine dos­es with a short inter­val can be vac­ci­nat­ed a third time when at least six months has passed since their sec­ond vac­cine dose.
