Is your Centro do Saude functioning? How about you go to see a doctor there and tell that person about your medical procedures and your need of the second vacc before end June - the doctor should have enough leverage to get an appointment for the vacc as needed in view of the Medical aspect of the problem. It may even be advisable to ask more from the medical point of view rather than the need to travel. Personally I do not see any reason for insisting on the MAXIMUM recommended period of 3 months between the vaccs rather than WITHIN 12 weeks/3 months which is what is advised.

PS We had our J&J vacc Thursday lunchtime, as you know, and so far have had NO side effects.

And now for the over sixties . Can access the page and input the information but it says if you have been vaccinated not to apply. Does anyone have any experience of this ? Had one astral Seneca jab in UK. Will ask when we pass by vaccination centre

Today I still couldn't log in using chrome, but succeeded using microsoft edge.

Resubmitted the request and now await response. again.

Campanula; just enter that you aren't yet vaccinated, as you aren't yet vaccinated in Portugal and therefore you're not in their system.

Default Re: Vaccinations Covid-19 for over 65s

Just wondered if anyone had any success with the option on the Saude website for people who have not yet obtained their Residencia due to delay's at SEF and hence not having a Utente number. The web site asks for your mobile number, passport number and address and then tells you that the info has been successfully sent. Have tried this several time's but no response yet and being over 70 would rather like to receive the jab.
Any other suggestions appreciated.
Old Biker.

I think I’m just going to have to wait now. I fell off my bike in the rain yesterday and broke my ankle. I’m now in Portimão hospital and have no idea when I’ll get out but I’m sure the total recovery will be beyond the Olympic golf tournament and so I’m sure I’ll have to scratch. Depressed

exactly so........your sns GP can go online immediately and put you in the list, if you have condition that makes you vulnerable he can move the Phase you would be vaccinated in.
But you must make sure that your local Centro de Saude has the correct contact info for you......phone number........if not you will never get a call.

Thank you. I am pretty desperate for something to read - a couple of old paperbacks and an Apple iphone charging cable. There is nothing here and each day is like a week. I’m in the orthopedic ward in bed 26. Thanks again. Richard
