Waiting list created for earlier vaccinations


People who have already made an appointment to be vaccinated against Covid-19 can also be included in a waiting list so that they can receive the jab earlier in case other appointments are canceled, as part of a pilot program announced in a Facebook post Friday by Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias.

“No vaccine dose can be lost,” he wrote. “The program is being piloted in specific locations across the country and will soon be extended to most vaccination centers,” he added.

Meanwhile, the platform for vaccine appointments was opened Friday for the 70-74 age group.

Vaccinations for the first category of vulnerable groups had started a week earlier. Vaccinations of the 65-69 age group are expected to start in early April and the platform for appointments is expected to open imminently.
