COVID-19 coronavirus vaccine vaccination booster

Another 270,000 openings for vaccinations of people aged 12 and over are now available online for the next 10 days, Primary Health Care Secretary General Marios Themistocleous said on Twitter on Wednesday.

Themistocleous said the appointments on the Emvolio platform concerned health facilities throughout Greece, and were created for citizens wishing to get their first or their third (booster) shot.

Meanwhile, Health Minister Thanos Plevris said in an interview with SKAI TV on Wednesday that the duration of a Greek vaccination certificate for all age groups is seven months.

Referring to the vaccination certificate, he said: “It has been locked that the seven-month certificate will apply to all ages, so that if someone has not received the booster shot in the seven-month window, he or she will be considered unvaccinated.”

Announcements to this effect will be made in the coming days, he added.
