People vaccinated abroad face glitch for booster


Greeks and foreign nationals who have been vaccinated abroad will be able to book their a booster in Greece soon, once a glitch in the system is ironed out.

Kathimerini understands that people who were vaccinated in another country are having problems booking their booster on the government’s platform because the system does not recognize their prior vaccinations.

According to a Digital Governance Ministry source who spoke to Kathimerini, the problem is expected to be resolved in the coming weeks.

“The regulation to include these numbers in IDIKA [the state’s electronic prescription system] has already been voted, we expect the platform to be ready before the holidays,” the source said.

This group of people will be able to register online of at their Citizens Service Centers (KEP).
