COVID-19 vaccination for people with kidney disease

Page updated: 30/12/2021

Everybody with kidney disease should be vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). For some people with kidney disease the vaccination schedule may differ from the general population.

People who have had a kidney transplant, are on a dialysis treatment or have kidney disease and are being treated with an immunosuppressant should receive 4 vaccine doses with the following schedule:

  • 3 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine on separate occasions (this is the primary vaccination schedule)
  • A booster dose (given 3 months after the 3rd dose).

For more information, please follow this link to the Covid-19 guidance for people with kidney disease page on the Kidney Care UK website.

Please Note: Some of this UK information differs by country; look for sections specific to Wales.
