Open vaccination points in ten Tallinn schools over the weekend

Friday to Sunday, 27-29. On August 10 at 20-20, vaccinations can be administered without pre-registration in ten Tallinn schools, vaccination is available in every district. Until the end of August, a vaccination point will also be open in the City Office.

"You can vaccinate in schools for the second weekend in a row, this time on three days from Friday to Sunday and in different schools from the previous time. This is a good way to get your first dose of vaccine before school starts. In particular, we have been thinking about organizing vaccinations in schools for students from the age of 12, but as before, family members of students and everyone else who has not yet been vaccinated are welcome,” said Ester Öpik, City Government's coronavirus prevention coordinator.

Vaccination points are open at Tallinn 21 Kool (Raua 6), at Tallinna Kristiine Gümnaasium (Nõmme tee 32), at Lasnamäe Gümnaasium (Pae 59), at Tallinna Kuristiku Gümnaasium (K. Kärberi 9), at Pirita Majandusgümnaasium (Metsavahi tee 19), at Tallinna Õismäe Vene Lütseum (Õismäe tee 28), at Tallinn 53. Keskkool (J. Sütiste tee 42), Tallinn Tehnikagümnaasium (Sõpruse pst 187), at Tallinna Nõmme Põhikool (Raudtee 68) and at Ehte Humanitaargümnaasium (Ehte 9).

The school notifies the students and parents about the vaccination and presents them a parental consent form. A student can go for vaccination with a parent or with a signed parental consent form. If the vaccination point is not in the student's own school, he or she can go to any school where vaccination is organized.

In addition to students, anyone who wish to get vaccinated can go to the vaccination points in schools without pre-registration.

Health care services are provided in schools by East Tallinn Central Hospital, West Tallinn Central Hospital, Tallinn Ambulance and Tallinn School Health Care Foundation. Pfizer / BioNTech Comirnaty, recommended by the National Expert Committee for this age group, is used to vaccinate students. The second dose can be given after six weeks.

Vaccination is voluntary and this has been reported to schools as well as to students and parents. The student can go for vaccination with a parent or with the written consent of the parent. If necessary, the consent form can be found on the Tallinn website. Everyone who is vaccinated can take part in a raffle with prizes such as cruises, spa visits, gift tickets and gift cards. The main prize is 30 iPads, of which one has been drawn.

In the Tallinn City Office (Vabaduse väljak 7), the vaccination point is open on weekdays from 10 am to 8 pm until 31 August. The entrance is through the door of the City Government service hall. Spikevax (COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna) is used for vaccination and is provided by Confido Medical Center. Until the end of August, those vaccinated with Moderna Spikevax will receive a second dose of the vaccine before the start of the active virus season. The interval between two doses of Spikevax or COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna is four weeks.
