Vaccination for self-payers without a public insurance

Whether you are a Czech citizen or a foreigner and do not have public health insurance in an EU country as of 11 June, it is possible to get vaccinated if you fall into one of the following groups.


Since 15 November, EU or non-EU citizens who meet at least one of the following conditions can be vaccinated in the Czech Republic:

  1. is a citizen of the Czech Republic without public health insurance,
  2. has a valid long-term or permanent residence permit in the Czech Republic,
  3. holds a valid long-term visa,
  4. is an EU citizen with a temporary residence certificate or permanent residence permit in the Czech Republic,
  5. is a family member of an EU citizen with a temporary residence permit or permanent residence permit in the Czech Republic.

The condition is that the individual stay must be for a minimum of 90 days. These groups can be vaccinated under the self-pay scheme (all of them are not covered by public health insurance). As for foreigners who have public insurance, different conditions apply).

If you do not meet any of these conditions, you cannot be vaccinated in the Czech Republic. 


Where to get vaccinated:

  • Use the filter "Self-payers" on (or other filters to make your search easier. The website is only in Czech),
  • if your GP vaccinates, ask him/her if he/she also vaccinates under the self-pay scheme.

Which vaccine is used:

If you use the "Self-payers" filter on (only in Czech), you will see what vaccine the vaccination site has available. If you are going to be vaccinated by your GP, please check with him/her which vaccine he/she has. 


From 15 November 2021, the recommended price for vaccination is CZK 400 (may change according to the price list of the specific vaccination site). This is the cost of administering the dose, the vaccine is already covered by the Czech Republic. This price is therefore paid twice for two-dose vaccines, for Janssen as a one-time payment. 

If you are vaccinated as of 15 November 2021 (you have had the first dose but not yet the second dose), you will also pay the recommended price (or the price list of the vaccination site) when the second dose is administered.
