Non-resident employees over 40 years of age and insured under the country’s social security scheme can now receive their Covid jabs free of charge as part of Monaco’s vaccination drive to cover all residents and workers as soon as possible.
There has been a progressive rollout of Monaco’s vaccination programme since it was launched earlier this year, starting with citizens, residents and students, and extending now to employees of the Principality.
On Thursday, the government announced that unvaccinated workers aged 40 and above are invited to take advantage of this programme and call the Covid Call Centre at +377 92 05 55 00 or visit www.covid19.mc to make an appointment.
The centre will then call back to set the day and time for an actual appointment, which will take place at the National Vaccination Centre located in Auditorium Rainier III. Participants must bring valid identification as well as proof of professional activity in the Principality.
A pre-vaccination medical consultation will be given before the shot is administered, and a practitioner will be on hand to answer any questions as well as provide information on the vaccine and its possible effects, given an individual’s medical history.
The appointment for the second vaccination will be made after the first inoculation has been given.
The vaccines are still open to all residents and citizens, who can get their appointments by following the same protocol described above.
The government is urging all those aged over 60 who have not yet been vaccinated to do so as soon as possible to lessen the chance of serious infection and to keep them safe.
