Over half a million people have so far failed to reply to the texts sent out to book their Covid jab since vaccinations began five months ago.

Almost 27% of the two million SMS texts sent went unanswered. Last week, a third of the expected people failed to show up at the eight vaccination centres in Lisbon.

Of those who did answer, most people (71%) said yes, and a tiny portion (around 2%) responded with no, according to the latest figures from the task force managing the vaccination plan.

The problem is if you changed your number
It is very difficult for the app to change the number. I am a 69 your old and from requesting SNS number to changing number for app it has been a three month nightmare. I am being denied medical treatment in a EU country. I wish there was a EU ombudsman to file a complaint against portugal.
