Appointment booking number for influenza and coronavirus vaccinations is very busy

The appointment booking number for influenza and coronavirus vaccinations is very busy. At the moment, there are hundreds of calls in the queue, and it may take us several days to call everyone back.

Our telephone service is busy because many people want to get vaccinated against influenza, book appointments for the third dose of the coronavirus vaccine and ask questions about Covid certificates. People who do not belong to medical risk groups can also call the same number to get a prescription for an influenza vaccine.

We are currently allocating more staff to the telephone service. Our staff also call clients back in the evening and on weekends, but it will take some time to clear the backlog. We are very sorry about the situation and ask for your patience as you wait for our call.
