Self-scheduling of vaccination for people aged 27

People aged 27 or over can now schedule vaccination against Covid-19 in the self-scheduling platform of the Directorate General of Health (DGS).

Vaccinations were accessible on 5 July to people between 18 and 29 years of age.

The availability of self-scheduling, however, is only accessible from 27 years of age.

Self-scheduling allows people to select the place and date they wish to be vaccinated, and then receive an SMS message confirming the day, time and vaccination centre. Confirmation of the appointment requires that a reply is sent to the SMS.

Following phase 2 of the vaccination plan and an increased number of vaccines received by Portugal, the portal for self-scheduling went live on 23 April for people aged 65 and over, and has since become available for bookings for the 50, 40 and 30 age groups.

According to the latest vaccination weekly report released by the DGS, 5,335,683 people have already received at least one dose and 3,295,132 have the complete vaccination, which represents 32 percent of the population.

This article is not factually correct. Our 19 year old son who is a UK medical Student who is helping out in the public and private medical hospitals queued for over two hours to get a vaccination only to be turned away at the doorvbecause he was not over 25!! What a shambles this rollout has become…. People schedule times and then have to queue for over 4 hours because the authorities have decided that they will do an “open house” at the same time and then people are old enough to work in hospitals at 19 and help out on surgeries but not old enough to get a jab. Someone needs to get a grip on this quickly!!

What has the world come to ?
I mean all for a virus that kills less than 1% of us.
