COVID-19 vaccination

Vaccination against COVID-19 started in Slovakia started in late December 2020. The first person received the jab on December 26.

Those who wish to be vaccinated will have to book the date via the website (vaccination registration form available in Slovak only).

Slovakia uses the vaccines that have been approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for use in the European Union: two mRNA vaccines, Comirnaty produced by Pfizer/BioNTech and the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, and the adenovirus-based AstraZeneca Oxford vaccine.  The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is expected to be added to the rollout soon.
