Are you over 60 and haven't been vaccinated in the Algarve?

People over 60 years of age who have not yet been vaccinated against Covid-19 can go today (9 June) and tomorrow (10 June), between 3 pm and 5 pm, to the Vaccination Centres in Albufeira; Lagoa; Lagos; Loulé; Faro; Portimao; Silves and Olhão to receive their vaccine.

According to the ARS website, no prior appointments are required and people simply have to bring their citizen card, to be eligible and appear on the Ministry of Health's vaccination lists and wait to be vaccinated.

This action comes within the scope of the initiative announced last week by the Task Force for the vaccination plan against Covid-19, whose objective is to create specific days and hours for people from more advanced age groups who, for some reason, have been left out of the process and can now be vaccinated without an appointment.

We are both over 60 and desperate for our jab.
We have registered on the sef website for non residents and heard nothing.
Why can't we have the vaccine.
