Vaccination Portal for over 88 to open tomorrow

As of tomorrow, 27 January, at 09:00 appointments will be available at the Vaccination Portal for people aged 88 and over. The final number of appointments will be announced at the end of the day today, since the Portal remains open today as well for people aged 90 and over.

The demand at the Vaccination Portal to set up appointments for the vaccination of people over 90 was very reduced yesterday since out of the 5,448 appointments that were available on 1,135 were scheduled (until 16:30).

Vaccinations are carried out by 11 units in 9 Vaccination Centres that already operate in all Districts. At the same time, the Linopetra Vaccination Centre, in Lemesos, starts its operation, while vaccination units are added in Latsia, Lakatamia and Pafos and the hours in Larnaka and the days in Lakatamia and Ammochostos are extended. Therefore, citizens will be served by a total of 15 units.

It is clarified that, depending on the rate of appointment bookings for people over the age of 88, citizens will be informed by means of an announcement on the availability of appointments for the next age groups.
