Default Vaccinations Covid-19 for over 65s

There has been an announcement today (seen via Safe Communities on Facebook) that anyone who is 65 and over can now apply direct online for their appointment for vaccination. This is the website - https://covid19.min-saude.pt/

You will need
Date of Birth
Utente number (the one you get from your Health Centre) and if you have not got a Utente number there is a link to click on for special instructions
Full name
Repeat Date of Birth
NIF - fiscal/tax number is also asked for.
Give mobile phone number where you will receive confirmatory SMS text and instructions
A suggested appointment date will come up once you have selected your District, Council/Municipality, and Vaccination Centre
and you can ask for a different date if you want to.
Confirmation can be printed or saved.

And that is it - done!!! - go for it !!

I have read that the EN English version may have hiccoughs so do it in the Portuguese version if you can.

If you complete the form on a Windows computer, there are no hiccoughs. Some people had problems on iPads and iPhones.

I applied on Friday and am still waiting for the text message. Just went back into the system and the message says to wait for the text. A friend nearby said that he applied yesterday afternoon and got a text back with a date of the 8th May. Confused in Lagos...

It's telling you the time and date of your appointment, 12:49 03/05/21. You must reply with SNS.(your utente number).(sim or nao).
You must put a full stop after SNS, and again after your utente number. If you accept the appointment put SIM, if not put NAO.
