Default Covid Booster 2023

Does anyone know if SNS is rolling out a covid booster, maybe combined with seasonal Flu this year?

Yes, according to AFPOP and Safe Communities Portugal, second half of September.

Thank you - do you know if that (the Covid booster) is for everyone or only for certain age groups?

Initially it will be for the vulnerable groups and the over 60s I believe.

Looks like the bulk of the vaccinations will be administered by pharmacies which have volunteered themselves for this season's campaign - so different to last and previous year, where only the SNS did the Covid vaccination and you waited to be called. This time, we need to register an interest at one of the participating pharmacies, either in person or via a platform.

Anyone over 60 can have both the flu and Covid vaccines administered at the same time. Stocks already reported as being short for the start of the campaign but should improve shortly. 29th Sept seems to be when the starting pistol is fired for actual jabbing.

Thnks Eric, better trot down town to register today. Maybe with both chemists mentioned just in case supplies are in short supply.

Looks like we'll be waiting for the phone call or text.

Not a chemist in Ourique is listed and only one in Castro Verde, which will, no doubt, already have a full list.

Don't hold your breath, Jan.

According to the Diario de Noticias, citing publication of a norma by the government, only pharmacies will handle the over 60s, whilst the SNS will vacinate the under 60s with health conditions which put them at risk, and various other special categories.

Use the "via a platform" link that Red Eric posted.
