  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system

Please Note: Eligible patients need to wait a for a minimum of 28 days from after their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine before receiving the third dose.

If you are unsure whether you should receive a third dose, please talk to your healthcare provider about whether you are eligible.
