Attestation form: For people who are moderate to severely immunocompromised

Doctors are to use this form for people who require a 3-dose primary vaccine series and booster(s). The majority of these patients will be notified by the Get Vaccinated system (by email/ text) of their eligibility and do NOT require this form. This form is only for those people who did not get a notification message but who have one or more of the conditions outlined below and therefore are recommended for a third dose to complete their primary vaccine series and booster(s).
