Vaccination timeline

CURRENTLY:  The vacation period is behind the corner, so please take into account your planned vacation when booking a vaccination date (dates for the two-dose vaccine). 

The covid-19 vaccination schedule is as follows:

At the end of December - the first Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines arrived in the Czech Republic. The vaccine will be divided between regions, distribution vaccination sites, and hospitals. The goal is to vaccinate healthcare professionals, who are in close contact with covid- 19 positive patients and seniors.

The validity of codes for chronic patients is also extended until this date (the start of issuing codes on 24 March and 12 April, depending on priority). Do not forget to register until mid-June. Registrations made on time remain valid even after the codes are revoked.

We reiterate that the above timeline relies on minor changes in the vaccine supply. If there are not enough vaccines, the schedule may change. The Czech Republic cannot influence the speed and amount of vaccine deliveries to the Czech Republic, only how many vaccines will be (pre) ordered.
