Hi,

 

I am a foreigner that has been in Portugal since the last lockdown. I would like to get vaccinated before travelling out anywhere else. I see that the government opened a registration form for foreigners without utente number here:

(Link was removed. The form is the first result in google searching for "vacinacao-nao-utente")

Do you know how the process would be and if the government has said anything about timelines for foreigners?

Will we be contacted by SMS? When trying to book the vaccine through the normal site (I am 41yo) without utente number it refers back to this form, so I guess we wait until we're called?

 

Thanks1

I think there have been some issues with this and that people without a utente number haven't been called as expected. I believe they are now holding open vacination sessions where you can just go along, but at the moment these are just for over 55 year olds. Google Safe Communities Portugal for up to date advice and information in English

@pamalcobaca Hi,

 

Thanks a lot for your reply. I looked at the Safe Communities Portugal and cannot find any information about this. Regarding the open vaccination sessions, is there a way to track the progress and age groups of that program? 

 

Thanks!

Hello,

I think you can try to register as “I do not have a utente number”

https://servicos.min-saude.pt/covid19/vacinacao-nao-utente

i am not sure if it is working well, but they were trying to have it ready for people that does not have a utente number.

 

😉
