Self-scheduling for the booster dose has been available for people over 45 years of age since last Monday, having been lowered today for people who are 40 and over.

The self-scheduling portal also allows appointments for people aged 60 or over for a booster dose against Covid-19 and flu vaccine, as well as for those who are over 18 and have been vaccinated with Janssen for more than 90 days.

As announced by the Directorate-General for Health, by the end of Saturday about 3.8 million people had already received the booster dose against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.

Since the vaccination plan started on December 27, 2020, more than 20 million doses of vaccines against Covid-19 have been administered in Portugal.
