The appoint­ment book­ing for coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions opens again on Tues­day 11th of May 2021 at 12 p.m.

Cur­rent­ly, the fol­low­ing groups are being vac­ci­nat­ed in Soite’s area: 

  • everyone over the age of 55
  • 16-64-year-old persons who belong to risk group 1 or 2 and have an illness or condition that is very highly or highly predisposing to severe coronavirus disease. More information on risk groups on the website of the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare THLBe prepared to prove you belong to the risk group at the vaccination site (e.g. by showing their Kela card or a copy of their epicrisis or prescription). Informal caregivers to and persons close to persons who belong to a risk group and live in the same household do not have the right to vaccination at this stage.
  • Please note: The Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare THL has changed the age group when it comes to risk group 2 to include persons from age 16. In Soite’s area, vaccinations of 16–17-year-old persons who belong to risk group 2 are arranged in the same places as the vaccinations for adults and with the same appointment booking system (booking by phone if the adolescent does not have access to methods for strong identification).

An appoint­ment for a coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tion can be booked online or by phone. Vac­ci­na­tion appoint­ments are added to the elec­tron­ic appoint­ment book­ing always on Tues­days at 12 p.m., but also 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.

Appoint­ment book­ing for a coro­n­avirus vaccination

  • electronic appointment booking in the Omahoito service at is open for all groups currently eligible for vaccination. More appointments are added on Tuesday at 12 p.m. 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.

  • telephone booking on 06 828 7488 opens Tuesdays at 12 p.m. The telephone line is open as long as appointments are available. The line will be cut when the number of available appointments runs out. At other times, those who call will hear a message on the phone. You can also book an appointment for an elderly person by phone.

The elec­tron­ic book­ing works more smooth­ly and we rec­om­mend that appoint­ments are booked online if pos­si­ble. The elec­tron­ic appoint­ment book­ing is eas­i­ly over­bur­dened imme­di­ate­ly after the appoint­ment book­ing opens, so there may be prob­lems in the func­tion of the Oma­hoito ser­vice. The ser­vice func­tions nor­mal­ly when the num­ber of vis­i­tors decreas­es, so when the sys­tem is over­loaded, it is best to wait a moment and then reat­tempt using the elec­tron­ic appoint­ment booking. 

Please note:

  • Come to be vaccinated only if you are healthy and only to an appointment you have booked.
  • Take your Kela card with you and take it out while you wait.
  • If you belong to a risk group: be prepared to prove you belong to the risk group at the vaccination site (e.g. by showing your Kela card or a copy of your epicrisis or prescription).
  • Wear clothes that make it easy to expose your upper arm.
  • Use a face mask and disinfect your hands when you come and when you go.
  • Keep a safe distance (2 metres) to other people while you wait.
  • Be prepared to stay at the vaccination site for 15 minutes after the vaccination.

You can fol­low how the vac­ci­na­tion pro­gress­es in the area with the help of Soite’s coro­na vac­ci­na­tion indi­ca­tor, which is updat­ed on Mon­day afternoons.

Safe­ty mea­sures against the coro­n­avirus should be remem­bered even after vaccination!

We want to stress that even if you have been vac­ci­nat­ed, you should still use a pro­tec­tive face mask in accor­dance with rec­om­men­da­tions, main­tain a safe­ty dis­tance of 2 meters to oth­er peo­ple and to fol­low coro­n­avirus relat­ed hygiene rec­om­men­da­tions.
