The Vaccination Centre is located within the premises of the Monegasque Screening Centre of the Princess Grace Hospital.
Appointments can only be made by telephone on (+377) 97.98.83.02.
Vaccination is one of the ways of tackling the virus. In the absence of a cure, it is, together with the use of barrier measures, the only way to protect yourself. It helps to avoid serious disease from the infection, hospitalisations, admissions to intensive care and deaths.
As Dr Jean-Michel Cucchi, President of the "Ordre des Médecins de Monaco", explains, "for our elderly, the vaccinations are highly effective. They are therefore the most effective vaccines for the people who need them most".
No. You must volunteer and give your consent to be vaccinated.
Your family doctor should be your first port of call, since they know your medical history better than anyone else. All general practitioners have received training on the scientific advances that the currently available vaccine relies on.
* In all cases of COVID-19 infection, the individual concerned will receive a certificate of recovery 11 days after infection, provided that the relevant conditions have been fulfilled (positive RT-PCR or antigen test).
Consequently, it is possible in some cases for a vaccinated person to have both received a complete vaccination course and hold a certificate of recovery.
In cases where the person has not received a complete vaccination course, they may use the certificate of recovery.
**N/A: not applicable
- Regardless of the vaccine used for the primary course of vaccination, all booster doses will use an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna). The booster dose involves administering an additional dose of the vaccine (or a half-dose in the case of the Moderna vaccine), which is designed to maintain a good level of protection by stimulating the immune system
- Children aged 5–11 years receive a paediatric dose
A booster dose (fifth dose or higher) can be administered 3 months after the last infection or injection to:
- People who are immunosuppressed or at high risk of complications, aged 18 or older, on the basis of a medical prescription
- Anyone aged 60 or older who wants one
