Booster dose



To prolong the efficiency of the vaccination after finishing the basic vaccination scheme, it is recommended to get vaccinated by the booster dose.

First booster dose

The first booster dose can be administered

  • to people older than 12 after 3 months since finishing the previous vaccination (the time lapse may differ depending on the combination of vaccinations against COVID-19)
  • to minors aged 5-11 after 6 months since finishing the previous vaccination against COVID-19 with the Comirnaty/Pfizer vaccine
  • to inhabitants insured in the Czech Republic on the costs of the health insurance companies
  • to self-payers, i.e. all inhabitants without public health insurance on their own cost
  • with the Comirnaty, Comirnaty 2022, Spikevax, Spikevax 2022, Jcovden (former Janssen), Nuvaxovid vaccines - see Information about available vaccines for more
  • at your general practitioners and vaccination centres without registration, or with registering through the Central booking system

In case you are entitled to get revaccinated by the booster dose, because 3 months since finishing the basic vaccination scheme have passed, you will receive a text message saying: 

CPOJ 32xx28xx22 se muze registrovat na posilujici davku ockovani proti Covid-19. Kontaktujte praktickeho lekare nebo se registrujte na crs.mzcr.cz.

(CPOJ 32xx28xx22 can now register for booster dose vaccination against Covid-19. Contact your GP or register on crs.mzcr.cz.)

Second booster dose

Vaccination with the second booster dose is recommended for all persons prior to autumn period due to an increased incidence of respiratory disease. 

The second booster dose can be administered

  • after 3 months since finishing the first booster dose (the time lapse may differ depending on the combination of vaccinations against COVID-19)
  • to inhabitants insured in the Czech Republic on the costs of the health insurance companies
  • to self-payers, i.e. all inhabitants without public health insurance on their own cost
  • with the Comirnaty 2022, Spikevax 2022 - see Information about available vaccines for more
  • at your general practitioners and vaccination centres without registration, or with registering through the Central booking system

Choosing the vaccination centre

The procedure of registering for the booster dose is the same like in case of the first dose. You can find the procedure in its own Life Situation. You can register here by clicking on "Posilovací Dáška: Registrace" (Booster dose: Registration). When registering through the Central booking system, it is necessary to use the same phone number that is saved in the ISIN system from the last entering of data (i.e. the last testing or vaccination). In case you come across any difficulties, contact Infoline 1221.

If you choose to get vaccinated at your general practitioner's, do not register through the Central booking system but make an appointment with your GP directly.

You can find a list of vaccination places that do not need registration here by clicking on the “Bez registrace a rezervace” (Without reservation or registration) filter.

Vaccination certificate

The certificates are generated right after the vaccination takes place, not depending on the vaccination place.

You can download the certificate here or in the Tečka app. If you cannot find your certificate or have troubles with signing in, contact Infoline 1221 or visit the support page of the Tečka app.

The certificate is valid right after the vaccination takes place. Currently, according to the Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council (EU 2021/953), its validation is not limited. Nevertheless, verify the validity of your certificates at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in case of traveling since each country has its own conditions for the validity of vaccination certificates.
