People older than 40 years can now book an appointment for their Covid vaccination. They will be administered the AstraZeneca vaccine.

The registration should be done via the virtual waiting room system.

Registration for another group opened only three days after the launch of the vaccination for people aged 45+.

Health Minister Vladimír Lengvarský (OĽaNO nominee) admitted that the age limit in the virtual waiting room could soon be scrapped. The reason is an uneven interest in Slovakia. While the appointments in western Slovakia are usually completely booked, there are empty slots in eastern Slovakia.
