Vaccine callout for 35 to 44 year olds

By Stephanie Horsman - May 25, 2021

Monaco is inviting residents aged 35 to 44 to roll up their sleeves for the Covid vaccine from this week, further expanding the number of people protected on the road to normality.

Starting Tuesday 25th May, letters will be sent out to eligible residents and citizens of the Principality aged 35 to 44 to receive their first dose of the inoculation against Covid-19. Those now entitled are being asked, once the letter has been received, to make an appointment via the website, www.covid19.mc or by calling 92 05 55 00. 

Availability of doses will dictate how quickly this new group will be able to obtain an appointment, though government authorities predict the first available appointments could be as soon as this weekend. The vaccine currently in use in the Principality is made by Pfizer BioNTech. Notably, it has been the only one administered in Monaco since the start of the crisis.

People have been quick to respond to the call to “get jabbed. In April, when the programme was opened to 45 to 55-year-olds, over 700 appointments were made in the first few hours alone.   

According to the government’s latest figures as of 18th May, 15,700 people had received at least one vaccine dose in the Principality, equivalent to 41% of the population. Meanwhile, the number of people to have received both shots numbered 12,975.

In an encouraging sign, the incidence rate also sits at its lowest level for months – 21, while only threepeople, all non-residents, are currently being treated at Princess Grace Hospital.
