  Azerbaijani citizens can get fourth dose of COVID-19 vaccine: TABIB

The revaccination against COVID-19 (the fourth dose of the vaccine) has not yet been used in Azerbaijan, said Yagut Garayeva, head of the Disease Prevention and Control Department of Azerbaijan’s Union for Management of Medical Territorial Units (TABIB). 

“But there are no contraindications in connection with revaccination and citizens can voluntarily get the fourth dose of the vaccine,” she said. 

Garayeva noted that it is strictly recommended in Azerbaijan to get the second dose of the coronavirus vaccine on the 28th day after the first dose.

The head of the department said that the conditions are created for citizens who, for one reason or another, have not received the second dose of the vaccine, to be fully vaccinated within 56 days (according to the manufacturer's recommendation).

Garayeva stressed that the third dose of the vaccine is intensifying.

"If a person is infected with COVID-19 six months after vaccination, the body's resistance may weaken and to strengthen it, it is recommended to get the third dose of the vaccine,” Garayeva added. “Citizens can do this by registering on the website www.randevu.its.gov.az ."
