Vaccination

How does the vaccine work?

Last update 01.07.2022

Voluntary vaccination against Covid-19 is a safe way to protect yourself from symptomatic viral disease. Therefore, it is the only real step towards the possibility of returning to the life that existed before the pandemic.

APPLY FOR THE VACCINE:
  • On the website manavakcina.lv
    • To apply for a specific vaccination time at a medical institution:
      • open the website manavakcina.lv (and fill in the application for the vaccine, if it has not been filled in yet);
      • select a calendar from those medical institutions that provide certain appointment times, noting the desired time interval;
      • wait for system confirmation (text message/email);
      • attend the vaccination at the selected place and at the approved time.
  • By contacting medical institutions that provide vaccination against Covid-19
  • By contacting your GP
    • To find out if vaccination is performed in your GP practice, or if it will only create a list of vaccinated persons, please contact the GP.
    • If the GP is also a provider of vaccination services (the GP will be able to say this during the conversation), then the GP will register you for the vaccine, as well as the vaccination process at the invitation of the GP will take place there - in the GP's practice.
    •  A list of addresses and contact information of medical institutions and GP practices that vaccinate against Covid-19 is available on this map.

The vaccine is also available at shopping centres, pharmacies and off-site vaccination points without a prior notice
