Young adults belonging to coronavirus risk groups in Helsinki will be able to make appointments for Covid vaccinations on Thursday 8 April, the city has announced.

The new queue affects Helsinki residents between the ages of 18-44 with a disease or condition that puts them at higher risk of serious illness from a coronavirus infection. Detailed information about qualifying conditions can be found on the city's website (in English)

The city's vaccination points are located in the districts of Jätkäsaari, Malmi and Myllypuro as well as the Messukeskus Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre.

As more jabs have arrived, vaccination points have extended their opening hours, further information can be found here (in Finnish).

The City of Helsinki currently uses two different vaccines, AstraZeneca for those over the age of 65, and Pfizer, which is given to people between the ages of 16-64.

Individuals who have recovered from Covid-19 will be eligible for vaccinations at least six months after the onset of symptoms or the diagnosis of the illness.
