New appoint­ments for coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions of chil­dren aged 5 to 11 at Soite’s vac­ci­na­tion cen­trals are opened con­tin­u­al­ly. In Kokko­la, the vac­ci­na­tions have already begun, and in the Lesti­jo­ki and Per­ho­jo­ki areas, vac­ci­na­tions of chil­dren are arranged as follows:

  • Kannus (place: seurakuntakeskus (the parish centre) 29th of January and 5th of February
  • Lestijärvi (place: the health station) 5th of February
  • Veteli (place: Passeli) evening vaccinations on Wednesday evenings starting 26th of January 
  • Perho (place: the health station) evening vaccinations on Thursday evenings starting 27th of January

You have to book an appoint­ment at the vac­ci­na­tion cen­tral online via Soite’s Oma­hoito service:

Log on to the Oma­hoito ser­vice with your online bank user iden­ti­fiers (or some oth­er means of strong iden­ti­fi­ca­tion) in order to book an appoint­ment for your­self or a per­son younger than 12.

All appoint­ments are avail­able via the online Oma­hoito ser­vice, but can­not be seen in the sys­tem until 15 days before the actu­al vac­ci­na­tion day. Days on which appoint­ment times are avail­able are marked with green in the web calendar.

A per­son who is under 18 years old may make a deci­sion about the coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tion if a health care pro­fes­sion­al assess­es that the per­son due to his/her age and lev­el of devel­op­ment is capa­ble of mak­ing deci­sions on his/her own care. There is no age lim­it for a child’s right of self-deter­mi­na­tion. That is why the sit­u­a­tion is assessed case by case. For most chil­dren aged 5 to 11, vac­ci­na­tion requires con­sent by the par­ents. Con­sent is giv­en with this form (in Finnish).

Chil­dren aged 5 to 11 are vac­ci­nat­ed using BioNTech-Pfizer’s Comir­naty vac­cine, with ver­sion of the prod­uct that uses a small­er dose and is espe­cial­ly intend­ed for this age group.
