Specialised nurses will pay house calls to administer coronavirus vaccinations to the bedridden, the health ministry said on Friday.

As part of its vaccination roll-out, the ministry said it was accepting applications for home visits of patients who are confined to bed. The vaccines will be administered by specialised nurses of the state health services (Okypy) who will contact applicants to arrange an appointment.

All patients registered as bedridden on the IT system of the the general health scheme (Gesy) are eligible. They will be required to submit to the ministry a duly completed and signed application either online on [email protected] or by fax on 22605491.

The form must be signed by the beneficiary and their personal doctor who will confirm the applicant is listed on Gesy’s IT system as confined to their bed.

Personal doctors are asked to contact their patients that they are eligible and brief them on the procedures.

People not registered on Gesy should contact Koula Michail on telephone 22605601 for instructions as to the process to be followed.

For any clarifications, contact Michail on telephone 22 605 601, the ministry added.
