Refugees from Ukraine can get vaccinated against COVID-19 for free

Estonia has offered a free emergency healthcare, dental care, testing against COVID-19 and vaccination against COVID-19 for refugees from Ukraine.

More information and booking is available via state helpline 1247 / +372 600 124 or in vaccination points without the need to pre-register.

If refugees don't have an Estonian ID-code yet, then they will be directed to go to the vaccination points, where ID-code and pre-registration aren't necessary.

However, passport or ID-card is needed when getting the vaccination, and if they have, also an immunization passport. After the first dose, a time slot for the second dose will be given. The vaccination information will be entered into the Estonian healthcare system.

In Estonia, Pfizer/BioNTech's vaccine Comirnaty, Moderna's vaccine Spikevax, Janssen's vaccine, and Novavax's Nuvaxovid are available for getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
