ATHENS — People aged 30-34 are able to set appointments for Covid-19 vaccinations as of Saturday (May 29), at emvolio.gov.gr.
The appointments platform opened for the 35-39 age group on May 26 and for the 40-44 age group on May 21.
Vaccines produced by Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson are now available for all age groups from 30 and over, as announced recently. All four are also available for people with underlying conditions, those in high-risk groups, employees in health services and all general education teachers and administrators.
In addition, as of Saturday, people aged over 18 can be inoculated with the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
The vaccination program is proceeding at a fast rate. Greece is currently third among the 27 EU countries in the rolling seven-day average of vaccinations per 100,000 people, and fifth in the percentage of population that is now fully vaccinated.
