Vaccination against COVID-19 - Foreign nationalsNews
17. 05. 2021
Please allow us to inform you that 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.
In accordance with those rules, we are vaccinating only people who have Czech public health insurance. Foreign nationals are entitled to vaccination in the following cases:
- They are insured in the public health insurance system in the Czech Republic (either due to performance of gainful activity or on the basis of European coordination regulations). Such foreign nationals can register for vaccination using their insurance policy number (i.e. assigned birth-registration number).
- They are insured in another EU country and are entitled to so-called complete care in the Czech Republic (i.e. they are holders of the S1 certificate of entitlement). Foreign nationals can register for vaccination using their insurance policy number (i.e. assigned birth-registration number) assigned to them upon additional registration.
- They are insured in another EU country and, based on the European Health Insurance Card, they are entitled to necessary care in the Czech Republic and additionally register with a Czech health-insurance provider. Registration is carried out using the insurance policy number that the given foreign national receives from his/her Czech health insurer. The person must carry out so-called additional registration with any of the seven Czech health-insurance companies.
- At the same time, all parties interested in receiving a vaccination must fulfil the conditions of the Ministry of Health. In particular, they must be in the age group that can register for vaccination or, as the case may be, have vaccination after undergoing an outpatient health assessment (patients with chronic illnesses or a medical condition that puts them in the high risk category for Covid-19). It is possible to register in the Central Reservation System at https://registrace.mzcr.cz/.
The Canadian Medical vaccination centre is part of the Central Reservation System of the Ministry of Health, i.e. all parties interested in receiving a vaccination have access to it regardless of Canadian Medical’s membership programmes. Therefore, the centre is not intended exclusively for clients of Canadian Medical.
The information line of the Canadian Medical Vaccination Centre is available to clients at telephone number 272 913 601, Mon. – Fri., from 8:00 to 16:30. Or you can contact the information line at 1221 operated by the Ministry of Health; in the menu, select option no. 2 and wait to be connected with an operator.
Thank you for your understanding and we wish you a pleasant day.
