The Slovak Spectator has decided to make all the articles on the special measures, statistics and basic information about the coronavirus available to everyone. If you appreciate our work and would like to support good journalism, please buy our subscription. We believe this is an issue where accurate and fact-based information is important for people to cope.
The ministry also stressed that people who will be vaccinated this upcoming weekend with the single-dose vaccine will still be considered to be fully vaccinated in time for Pope Francis' visit to Slovakia. Only fully vaccinated people will be allowed to meet the Pope. The condition applies to people older than 12.
The last date to be vaccinated with a single-dose shot to be considered fully vaccinated in time for the Pope’s visit is Sunday, August 22.
The Education Ministry has meanwhile called on people, particularly those working in schools, to get vaccinated before the start of the school year, which begins in Slovakia on September 2. Vaccinated people, for example, are exempted from quarantine when they encounter a coronavirus positive person but have no symptoms.
During the weekend, starting on Friday, vaccines will be available without previous registration in 12 towns across Slovakia.
The Janssen vaccine is meant for people older than 18.
Walk-in vaccination will be available to anyone based on an ID and health insurance card. Foreigners can use their residence card or other confirmation of residence for identification.
