Covid vaccines for people with cancer

People who might have been immunosuppressed at the time of their first two vaccine doses are eligible to receive a third primary dose. This includes:

  • People diagnosed with blood cancers
  • People who have received stem cell transplants
  • People who had received immunosuppressive chemotherapy or radiotherapy in the last 6 months

The third dose should be given at least 8 weeks after the second dose, with special attention paid to current or planned immunosuppressive therapies.

People who have had a 3rd primary dose due to immunosuppression are now recommended to have a 4th dose (booster) after three months.
