Can a patient who has been transplanted get the Covid 19 vaccine and, if so, which one?
Covid 19 vaccination is safe for liver transplant recipients and all transplant recipients in NI have been offered vaccinations with the overwhelming majority taking up the offer. Therefore almost all liver transplant recipients in NI are now vaccinated. If you have not yet been vaccinated, the vaccine you will be offered will be suitable for your circumstances (age/underlying disease etc). All individuals on the waiting list for liver transplant will be offered accelerated vaccination (second dose after 3 weeks) to ensure they are adequately vaccinated at the time of transplantation.
