VACCINATION AGAINST COVID-19 AT CANADIAN MEDICAL

Vaccination against COVID-19 is being carried out at Canadian Medical in accordance with prioritisation and all methodologies established by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic (MHCR).

We only vaccinate clients who have Czech public health insurance.

From 1 March 2021, you can register for vaccination via the MHCR portal at https://registrace.mzcr.cz. Alternatively, you can wait to speak by telephone with an employee of the vaccination centre, who will contact Canadian Medical clients and assist them with registering in the MHCR system.

If for any reason you are unable to complete your registration in the MHCR’s Central Reservation System, please call 1221.

Vaccination of Canadian Medical clients against COVID-19 is being carried out only at the vaccination centre, which you can find in Prague at Evropská 859/115a (AFI building), ground floor, entrance A.

Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca will be administered.

COVID-19 vaccine

Although immunisation against COVID-19 is now available in the Czech Republic, the vaccines are currently only being administered in designated vaccination centres.  Unfortunately, as of yet, we do not know when the vaccines will be available at our clinics, however, we would like to assure you that we are continuously monitoring the situation in cooperation with the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic. Information about the availability of the vaccine and the conditions for its administration will be available on our website as soon as practicable.

For more information click here.

Dear Clients, we regret to inform you that the exact date of availability of the COVID-19 vaccine is not currently known, nor have any conditions for vaccination of clients been precisely determined. We are continuously monitoring the situation around the development and availability of the vaccine for the Czech market.

 

We apologise for the fact that, due to the current epidemiological situation, the period for making appointments may be longer in the case of some of our doctors and specialisations. Please see our website for up-to-date information.

If you have symptoms of a respiratory illness, stay home and contact your doctor.
