Do you have questions about vaccinations? Check espoo.fi/coronavaccination

We receive a lot of feedback and numerous questions about the coronavirus and vaccinations. We are unfortunately unable to respond to individual messages. The same people who respond to messages are also responsible for organising vaccinations, which means that responding to messages would delay the vaccination process. Before sending us your question, we ask you to first check if you could find an answer on our website at espoo.fi/coronavaccination. Please also read the linked news on the page.

The next situation report will be published when we have information on new changes.
