Vaccines have arrived in the Principality
Covid-19 vaccination campaign
In view of the recent favourable opinion of the European Medicines Agency, the Government of Monaco is opening up the third dose to Monegasques and residents aged 65 and over, as well as to health professionals who have been vaccinated for more than 6 months. The Government has just sent them a letter offering them, if they so wish, the possibility of receiving a third dose of vaccine in order to reinforce their immune protection.
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.
