Healthcare workers and employees of nursing homes can now register for vaccination through an online form published at the Korona.gov.sk website.

The form is open for all medical staff, but those diagnosing and treating patients who tested positive for the coronavirus take precedence, the TASR newswire reported. Also people helping take care of sick people directly or indirectly, such as students and employees of companies that clean up hospitals, can register.

Another risky groups taking priority are employees of nursing homes and in-field workers, the Health Ministry explained.

They can choose from six vaccination centres situated in the following hospitals:

  • UNB Ružinov
  • UNB Kramáre
  • UNB Petržalka
  • FN Nitra
  • FN FDR Banská Bystrica
  • FN Košice

“We will gradually update the list after January 10,” the Health Ministry said, as quoted by TASR. Altogether 25 vaccination centres are prepared to open.

The ministry plans to continue opening the vaccination centres in all districts and follow the vaccination strategy.
