The European Medicines Agency (EMA) recently approved the administration of an additional dose of Pfizer-BioNTech's vaccine for adults, as a booster (commonly called "3rd dose"), in order to reinforce the vaccine's effectiveness.

In this context, the Government of Monaco is proposing that the following people benefit from this "3rd dose":

  1. Monegasques and residents aged 18 and over
  2. Health professionals

 

Provided that they have received the last dose of vaccine against Covid-19 more than four months ago. 

This vaccination is free of charge.

 

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. The COVID-19 Call Centre can also provide you with information.

You can receive an additional dose of the vaccine ("third dose") free of charge if you are in one of the following categories:

  • You are Monegasque or a resident of the Principality, over 18 years of age and were given your second dose more than four months ago

or

  • You are a health professional and were given your second dose more than four months ago

or

  • You have conditions that put you at risk and you have a medical certificate

 

The administration of this additional dose of the vaccine reinforces the effectiveness of vaccination, which may wane over time.  This is in accordance with the favourable opinion of the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

If you would like to take advantage of this third vaccination, contact the COVID-19 Call Cetre on 92.05.55.00. This call centre can be reached 7 days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., or make a request on line via the website vaccination-covid19.gouv.mc.

You will then be called back to make an appointment to be vaccinated at the National Vaccination Centre located at the Rainier III Auditorium.  You do not need a serological test or medical prescription to have a third dose of the vaccine.

No. You should not just turn up under any circumstances. To make an appointment, you need to telephone the COVID-19 Call Centre on 92.05.55.00, or you can register online via this website

  • The booster vaccination is only administered with an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna), regardless of which vaccine was used for the first vaccination.  It consists of an additional dose of vaccine (or half a dose for the Moderna vaccine), which is designed to maintain a good level of protection by stimulating the immune system
  • Children aged 5-11 years are given a paediatric dose
