How to book an appointment for a corona vaccination

The first vaccine is given with or without appointment. For the booster vaccine you must always book an appointment. You can book the appointment online or by phone.

Opening hours of the vaccination points for those getting the vaccine without appointment

NB! If you have had a severe allergic reaction to another vaccine, please book an appointment to the Jätkäsaari vaccination point.

Appointment booking electronically

Book an appointment electronically at bookcovidvaccine.fi. It takes two injections to be fully protected by the vaccine. You can book the second appointment at the same time as the first.

For the appointment booking you need bank codes or a mobile certificate and information about where you will be vaccinated.

Booking an appointment on behalf of another person

To be able to act on behalf of another person, you must have a written mandate.

You can make a mandate for another person to act on your behalf here Suomi.fi. You must identify yourself with bank codes or a mobile certificate in the service.

In the suomi.fi service, you can give or ask for a mandate for another person, e.g. the right to act on your behalf.
