The vaccination will be available at 215 locations across the country, including district centers and hospitals. Where necessary, vaccination buses will also be back in service.
Ágnes Galgóczi, head of the epidemiology department of the National Public Health Center (NPHC), said that vaccination action weekends would be organized by general practitioners in January. Each GP should vaccinate patients in their practice on a Friday and Saturday of their choice.
She stressed that the vaccination weeks in November had been a great success. Most of the people getting their third vaccination did so during these times, and more than 6 million people have already received their first vaccinations. More than half of those vaccinated have already received their third dose, which is very important for preventing the further spread of the pandemic and the Omicron variant.
Vaccinations for children aged 5 to 11 years are still only available by appointment at hospital vaccination points or at general pediatricians.
A booster dose is recommended for anyone who has had their previous vaccination more than 4 months ago. With a third vaccination, protection can be increased to 80–90 percent again.
