Going to the vaccination

There are four vaccination points in Helsinki:

Jätkäsaari
Kannelmäki
Malmi
Myllypuro

How do I get to the vaccination point?

You can come to the vaccination by car, bike, public transport or on foot.

Kela will provide compensation for travel costs associated with getting vaccinated against COVID-19 under the same terms as for any other trip to visit a healthcare provider (also for the return trip). Clients who use public transport or a private car must claim compensation afterwards from Kela. The easiest way to claim is to visit Kela's e-services at www.kela.fi/asiointi (Finnish) or www.fpa.fi/etjanst (Swedish).

Clients who for health reasons are prevented from using public transportation, or it is not available, can get a reimbursement for using a taxi 27.3.-31.12.2021. If you have the right to use a taxi and get reimbursed by Kela, call the regional dispatch number to book a taxi. Please be aware that if you book a taxi in some other way, Kela will not reimburse you for the trip. Read instructions on Kela's website: How to book a taxi.

How do I act at the vaccination point?

It’s safe to visit the vaccination points. Remember the following when visiting the vaccination points:

  • Don’t attend your vaccination appointment if you have symptoms of coronavirus. Typical symptoms are fever, cough, a sore throat, shortness of breath, muscle ache, nausea and deterioration of general health. Loss of smell and taste is a quite typical symptom.
  • Don’t attend your vaccination appointment if you have been quarantined. If you have recently been abroad, the health safety instructions for coming to Finland must be followed. See here for more information on how to proceed after entry.
  • Please dress so that it is easy to access your shoulder.
  • Please be prepared to verify your identity with an ID card or similar and take it out while you are waiting.
  • Use a face mask.
  • Take care of your hand hygiene.
  • Keep a safe distance to others.
  • Avoid using strong perfumes.
  • Be prepared to stay for monitoring for at least 15 minutes after the vaccination.

NB: Please arrive to the vaccination punctually. There are no separate waiting areas at the vaccination points. Be prepared to que and dress accordingly. Remember to drink enough before the vaccination.


Vaccines in use

The Pfizer vaccine and the Moderna vaccine are currently available for people aged 12 or older.

Vaccination is free and voluntary.

Corona vaccination for children and young people

Underage persons may decide on whether or not to take the corona vaccine if a health care professional deems them capable of making the decision, based on age and developmental level. This assessment is made at the vaccination point. In the event that a young person cannot decide on the vaccination, consent from both parents/guardians is required. Consent is given with this form (pdf).

NB: Persons who have already had COVID-19 are offered the vaccine after at least two months have passed from the onset of symptoms or from the confirmed infection. If you have had a coronavirus infection after you have received one coronavirus vaccine dose, a second dose is generally not given. According to the studies a person who has had the infection gets at least an equally good protection from one vaccine dose as other people get from two vaccine doses.
