“There are extensive coronavirus outbreaks in already 24 Tallinn schools, in addition to numerous individual cases. Although the disease is not as dangerous for children as for the elderly, the wide spread of the virus affects infected children, their families and relatives, and unfortunately also school work. Although vaccination does not rule out the disease, it has a proven effect on slowing down the spread of the virus, and the course of the disease is usually easier in the event of a possible infection,” said Ester Öpik, coordinator of Tallinn coronavirus prevention measures. “Second doses of the vaccine will be injected in schools this coming weekend, but we very much hope that people who have not yet done so for various reasons, or who have been ill more than six months ago, will also come to get vaccinated.”

You can get vaccinated on October 9 from 10 am to 3 pm at Pirita Majandusgümnaasium (Metsavahi tee 19). Vaccination points are open at 10 am to 6 pm in Tallinn 21 Kool (Raua 6, Kesklinn), Kuristiku Gümnaasium (K. Kärberi 9, Lasnamäe), Õismäe Vene Lütseum (Õismäe tee 28, Haabersti), Nõmme Põhikool (Raudtee 68, Nõmme) and Ehte Humanitaargümnaasium (Ehte 9, Põhja-Tallinn), Tallinna 53. Keskkool (J. Sütiste tee 42, Mustamäe) and Tallinna Tehnikagümnaasium (Sõpruse pst 187, Mustamäe).

On October 10, from 10 am to 6 pm, vaccinations are administered at Tallinna Kristiine Gümnaasium (Nõmme tee 32) and Lasnamäe Gümnaasium (Pae 59).

If the vaccination point is not in the student's own school, he or she can go to any school where vaccination is organized. Anyone from the age of 12 can be vaccinated without pre-registration.

The Pfizer / BioNTech Comirnaty vaccine is used for vaccination. Vaccination is performed in schools by health care workers of East-Tallinn Central Hospital and West-Tallinn Central Hospital in cooperation with school nurses.

All Tallinn schools have sent a letter of notification and a parental consent form to students and parents. The student can go for vaccination with the written consent of the parent or parent. The consent form can also be found on the Tallinn website https://www.tallinn.ee/eng/vaktsineeri-eng
