“Portugal has already administered around 1,561,000 doses of flu vaccine (including around 400,000 in pharmacies) and more than 750,000 booster and additional doses of the Covid-19 vaccine. These results were possible with the acceleration of the daily vaccination, including at the weekend, through the 'Open House' programme”, indicates the DGS in a statement.

The DGS emphasises in the communiqué that the “open house” programme, for people aged 75 and over, is maintained throughout the week.

Before going to the Vaccination Center in their area of ​​residence, people are asked to check the opening hours (at https://covid19.min-saude.pt/casa_aberta/ ).

In the statement, the DGS also recalls that self-scheduling of vaccines is available for people aged 65 and over (at https://covid19.min-saude.pt/pedido-de-agendamento/ ).
