Children belonging to risk groups (aged 6 months to 11 years) are given coronavirus vaccinations by appointment at the Malmi centralised maternity and child health clinic service (Malminraitti 17 A). You can book a vaccination appointment by calling the child health clinic’s telephone service, tel. 09 3105 5530 (Mon–Fri 8.00–14.00).
The treating doctor’s statement will be checked from the patient information system when you make the appointment.
Proof of identity needed for vaccination
To get vaccinated, you must prove your identity, for example, with an ID card or Kela card. Vaccination is voluntary and free of charge. We vaccinate in accordance with the recommendations of the Finnish institute for health and welfare (THL).
If a child comes in for a coronavirus vaccine with only one guardian, a consent form signed by the absent guardian must be presented. The consent form can be printed from the THL website by clicking here(Link leads to external service)
