Simultaneous vaccination for people aged over 30, 40 and 50

The task force for vaccination against covid-19 in Portugal will implement a system that involves the initiation of simultaneous vaccination for various age groups with a one week interval between them, between the end of May and the beginning of June.

The over-50s will start to be vaccinated first; a week later jabs will start to be given to the over-40s, and one week later the over-30s.

The objective, according to reports, is to take advantage of Johnson & Johnson's vaccines for the over-50s, and use Pfizer and Moderna for other age groups.

The main goal is to achieve group immunity as quickly as possible.

Why are you not allowed to chose which vaccine you are give???. It should be your right to chose and not to be told what you are going to be injected with regardless.

That's good news.
I am interested in whether I can also get vaccinated as e.g. a tourist in Portugal or whether this is only intended for the locals in the respective European countries.
It is definitely good news for Portugal. That seems to be better solved here in Portugal than in many other European countries. However, I also see the need behind this due to the resurgent tourism in Portugal.

Vaccinating young healthy people with covid vaccines is nothing but fraud, I hope the healthy young people refuse these vaccines which are only emergency approved and no one can guarantee safety. Now it is also the case that those who are in hospitals include those who have been vaccinated.

How can that be? There is so much talk about being protected after the first injection, but that is not the case in reality !!!!

Think and question and ask yourself the question why young healthy people are forced to take an unapproved vaccine. Remember, the mortality rate for people under the age of 70 who receive covid-19 is 0.001%. Why get vaccinated with a vaccine that no one knows what the side effects will be now and in the future.

Think and use your common sense!

Total garbage. My wife and I are 62 in Sintra and haven’t been contacted yet.

The pace of vaccination has been varied across the country. In the Algarve most people in the age group 60 to 79 have only received the first dose. The interval between the 1st and the 2nd can be up to 12 weeks, so we will be at the start of autumn before the majority of adult population in this region will get full protection from the vaccine.

I must admit that I will only believe it when I see it. So far, the vaccination has been woefully slow in Porto.
