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.

It should be noted that the COVID-19 Call Centre is not qualified to offer medical advice but can give you information about the conditions for accessing vaccination.

No. You should not just turn up under any circumstances.

To make an appointment, you need:

The third and fourth doses (first and second booster doses) are available without a prescription to people aged 18 and over.

Children aged 12 to 17 years require a medical prescription and parental consent to receive this dose.

Employees and school pupils in Monaco who received their primary vaccination in Monaco can also get their booster doses at the Vaccination Centre.

No, only the COVID vaccine is administered at the Vaccination Centre.

If you would like to get the flu vaccine, you should contact your usual doctor or chemist.

Note that it is possible to have both vaccines on the same day, the only requirement is to use a different injection site.

* 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.

Please note:

  • 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
