The health ministry on Thursday announced it will be giving minors aged 16 to 17 who are not registered with Gesy the chance to book a vaccination appointment.
The decision to vaccinate this age group was taken in a bid to ensure the protection of public health and “after taking into account the recommendations of the Cyprus paediatric society”, the ministry said.
Non-Gesy residents will be able to book a vaccination appointment by submitting the relevant application form found on PIO’s website, along with a copy of their Identity Card or other identification document, and their alien registration card (if they are foreign).
Documents can either:
- be sent via the email [email protected], OR
- by post to 1 Prodromou & 17 Chilonos Street, 1449, Nicosia, Cyprus, OR
- hand-delivered in hard copy to the Ministry of Health at the same address.
Teenagers must have with them a signed form by their parents or guardians on the day of their appointment. The form should be signed by both parents or guardians unless there is a court decision suggesting this is unnecessary.
Other documents required include ID as well as a copy of the identification documents of their guardians.
The vaccination portal opened up for Gesy-registered 16 and 17 year olds on Wednesday.
