Covid-19 and influenza vaccinations are being simultaneously administered across the country after the latest round of vaccinations began on Monday.

Speaking to CyBC on Monday morning, medical services director Elisavet Constantinou said those entitled to be vaccinated will be able to receive both vaccinations either on the same day, or on different days.

The vaccination centres will operate at the Latsia health centre in Nicosia, the Linopetra health centre in Limassol, and at the hospitals in Kyperounta, in Larnaca, in Paphos, in Polis Chrysochous, and in Paralimni (the Famagusta general hospital).

The health centres in Latsia and Linopetra will be open on weekdays between 8am and 3pm, while the hospitals in Larnaca, Paphos, and Paralimni will be open on Wednesdays and Fridays from 8am to 3pm.

The Kyperounta hospital will be open on Wednesdays between 8:30am and 3pm, while the Polis Chrysochous hospital will be open between 9am and 1:30pm on Tuesdays.

Vaccinations will be carried out by appointment, and those wishing to receive only the flu vaccination will be able to do so from their GPs.

Previously, the health ministry had said that the Covid-19 vaccination programme for the upcoming period will focus on protecting those aged 60 and above, along with other vulnerable groups – regardless of their age – and those being vaccinated for issues of public health.

The full list of people entitled to vaccines is available here, and is currently only available in Greek.
