The vaccination portal opened on Saturday for people between 50 and 54 who missed the opportunity to get an appointment earlier on.

The portal will remain open until 5.30pm on Saturday for this age group.

On Sunday, the portal will open for the 55 to 60 age group between 7.30am and 5.30pm.

On Monday people between 18 and 21 will be able to vaccinate. The portal will be open between 7.30am and 5.30pm.

The ministry urged students who are currently abroad not to book an appointment now because they will miss it and will not be able to reschedule it. It said that the vaccination portal will open in June for students who are studying abroad.

According to the health ministry the implementation of the National Vaccination Plan against Covid-19 continues intensively with the aim of vaccinating the largest possible percentage of the population. By May 13, 42.5 per cent (314,163 people) were vaccinated with the first dose and 13.3 per cent of the population (98,605 people) have completed their vaccination regimen.

Up to Thursday, a total of 412,768 vaccinations were administered, which is 46.9 doses per 100 inhabitants, ranking Cyprus in third place among EU member states.
