The appoint­ment book­ing for coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions is now open for all per­sons over the age of 65 and for 18–64-year-old per­sons who belong to risk group 2

Many appoint­ments for coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions are still avail­able and more vac­cines are arriv­ing to Soite’s area. There­fore, we are expand­ing the tar­get group for vac­ci­na­tions. Coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions are now offered to:

  • all 18-64-year-old persons who belong to risk group 2
  • all persons over the age of 65
  • appointments are also given to the earlier target groups, i.e. persons over the age of 70 and for 18-69-year-old persons who belong to risk group 1

The appoint­ment book­ing has already been opened in the elec­tron­ic Oma­hoito ser­vice! Book­ing by phone opens Tues­day 13.4.2021 at 12 p.m. More vac­ci­na­tion appoint­ments are opened on Tues­day at 12 p.m. even in the elec­tron­ic appoint­ment book­ing. Vac­ci­na­tion appoint­ments are added to the elec­tron­ic appoint­ment book­ing even at oth­er times if appoint­ments are can­celled or if the num­ber of vac­cines sud­den­ly increas­es. The days that still have appoint­ments avail­able are marked with green colour in the web calendar.
