This news article describes the situation concerning coronavirus vaccinations in Espoo on Thursday 23 December 2021 at 16:46. Please note that our news articles contain information that was valid at the time of publication. The situation concerning vaccinations is changing rapidly at the moment.

Coronavirus vaccinations for 5–11-year-olds

The coronavirus vaccine is now available to all 5–11-year-old children.

You can book an appointment for a child online at bookcovidvaccine.fi(extrernal link) or by calling our call-back number 09 816 34800 (Mon–Fri 8:00–18:00).

Please note! Information on the amendment to the decree was provided at short notice, which is why the Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa (HUS) has not yet updated the appointment booking system accordingly, but you may book an appointment even though the system only mentions 5–11-year-old children who belong to risk groups.

In Espoo, children are vaccinated by appointment at the Tapiola Health Centre and Espoon keskus vaccination sites and the Iso Omena maternity and child health clinic.

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(extrernal link). Please also read the linked news on the page.

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