Vaccination will open for people over 30 next week

From Sunday to Monday at midnight, registration for Covid-19 vaccination will open in the Czech Republic for people between the ages of 35 and 39. At midnight from Tuesday to Wednesday, people aged 30 to 34 will also be able to apply for vaccination. Prime Minister Andrej Babiš (ANO) told CNN Prima News this morning. The Prime Minister assumes that from June the vaccination will be open for everyone over 16 years of age.



According to the Prime Minister, a new website "ocko.uzis.cz" will start operating at the beginning of June. People will be able to find out information about vaccinations against Covid-19, tests and the protection period after being infected by Covid-19.


Vaccination against Covid-19 in the Czech Republic began at the end of December. Healthcare professionals have administered approximately 4.4 million doses since then. About 1.14 million people have completed vaccinations. People over the age of 80 were the first to apply to the vaccination registration system in the country, followed by health professionals, school staff or chronic patients, and other age groups.


Vaccination for foreigners - information from the Ministry of Health:


"Foreign nationals who are either directly insured within the public health insurance system in the Czech Republic, or are entitled to full care or essential care in the country, can now register for vaccination using the policyholder number which they obtain from their Czech health insurance company.


For other groups of foreigners who are citizens of third countries and do not have long-term residency in the Czech Republic, the technical solution for registering for vaccination and the vaccination itself is the subject of negotiations on an international level."
