How to get vaccinated against COVID-19?Dernière modification le 20/10/2021
Anyone who is a Monegasque national or resident, is a pupil or student educated in Monaco, or who works in Monaco can be vaccinated free of charge.
Those who work in the Principality must show proof of employment.
Minors must be accompanied by a legal representative and must present a duly completed authorisation form (either joint authorisation from their legal representatives, or sole authorisation if they only have one legal representative). This can be downloaded below.
To make an appointment, those wishing to be vaccinated can contact the CHPG Screening Centre only by telephone at 97.98.83.02.
The whole population is susceptible to contracting COVID-19.
However, some people are more at risk of severe forms. There is justification for these people to be vaccinated against COVID-19 on the basis of one or more of the following co-morbidities, which could lead to a serious form of the disease, such as:
- Obesity (BMI >30)
- COPD and severe respiratory failure
- Complicated arterial hypertension
- Heart failure
- Diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2)
- Chronic kidney failure
- Cancers and malignant haematological diseases that are active and date from fewer than 3 years ago
- Solid organ or haematopoietic stem cell transplantation
- Trisomy 21
- Others to be specified
If you have one or more of these risk factors, you can download the prescription form below and consult your doctor in order to justify vaccination against COVID-19.
An appointment for the vaccination will be arranged as soon as possible.
No. You can consult your family doctor if you wish, but it is not necessary. At the National Vaccination Centre, there will always be a doctor to accompany you if you need one.
No, you do not need to get tested. However, you should postpone your appointment in the following circumstances:
- If you are showing signs of an infection (temperature, cough, etc.)
- If you have been in contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 7 days
- If you have been infected with COVID-19 within the last 3 months
- If you have a temporary contraindication to vaccination
There is not yet enough information to determine how long the immunity provided by any of the vaccines will last. We will know in a few months.
It is therefore possible that a booster vaccine may be required in the shorter or longer term to provide renewed immunity.
The Principality began the vaccination campaign on December 30th. The objective was to give priority to people over 75 years of age and to health workers most at risk.
Since January 19, vaccination has been open to people over 65 who want it and to people under 65 who suffer from serious pathologies.
Since Thursday, March 11, vaccination has been open to people over 55 who want it and to people over 18 who present risk factors for co-morbidity according to a list drawn up by the French High Authority of Health taken up in Monaco. An attending physician must certify comorbidities.
On presentation of a medical certificate, these people can make an appointment with the Covid-19 call center at 92.05.55.00 or online (https://vaccination-covid19.gouv.mc/).
