Corona vaccinations in Vaasa

Corona vaccinations are given in Vaasa according to the guidelines of THL and Vaasa Hospital District. Receiving vaccination times depends on when, how much and which kind of vaccines first arrive in Finland and to Vaasa via the hospital district. We are updating this page with information about corona vaccinations in Vaasa.

Due to fluctuations in the availability of vaccines, vaccination times cannot be given a long time in advance in case they have to be cancelled if vaccines do not arrive at health stations in time. The number of vaccines received is known about a week ahead at a time.

We strongly advice people to respect the appointments given and to avoid rescheduling without a very good reason (rescheduling only possible by phone). Rescheduling might cause unused vaccinations and inefficient use of staff resources.

Instructions for those arriving for vaccinations

Vaccination takes place at your own health station.

Please present your KELA card at the reception upon arrival. There is no need to register at the reception. Please do not come to the reception if you have any flu symptoms. When dressing before coming to your appointment, please consider that the vaccination is given in the upper arm. Arrive at the reception 5 minutes before your appointment time and leave the lobby 15 minutes after the vaccination.

The corona vaccination is given in two doses. The aim is to provide the second dose about three weeks after the first dose.

You can get a reimbursement for your travel costs from Kela if you cannot use public transport because of your health or difficult travel arrangements, you can be reimbursed also for using your own car or a taxi. The least expensive means of transport is typically public transport (e.g. train or bus). Read more on Kela website.
