Access to vaccination against COVID-19 is a public health priority and essential for each patient concerned. To best protect immunocompromised people, vaccinating their family and friends and respecting barrier measures remain the best ways to avoid contamination.
The decree updated on 07/08/2021 broadens the indications and specifies the new modalities of vaccination against COVID-19 to immunocompromised patients (by the disease or the necessary treatments: long term corticosteroids, immunosuppressive drugs, Rituximab or other biotherapies), marrow and organ transplant patients and some other diseases.
The latest recommendations of the SFGM-TC of 20/09/2021 and
of Vaccine Strategy Policy Board on 19/11/2021specify the indications for a 3rd injection in patients over 65 years of age and in immunocompromised patients who have not developed antibodies, or even a 4th injection in some cases. This will depend on your response to the first two doses of vaccine. We therefore advise you to contact the secretariat of the hospital where you are being treated and your referring physician to be vaccinated according to the MATHEC recommendations. If you have already contracted COVID-19: in this case, you must wait at least 3 months after the onset of symptoms of COVID-19 to receive an injection.
