Woman receiving vaccination

Covid-vaccination appointments for week 22 can be made online starting at 4 PM Friday 28 May onwards at rauma.terveytesi.fi. Online appointments require secure authentification. Online appointments can be made by people in risk groups and who have turned 50 years of age. Those who have not yet turned 50 this year must make appointments by telephone.

Appointments can be made by telephone from the number +358 44 403 2687 from 8 AM to 3 PM on Saturday 29 May for as long as there are appointments left. If the call is not received, it is better to leave a call-back request than to call again.

Locations

On week 22 vaccinations are given at Kauppis, Satamakatu 26, and at the Healthcare center, Steniuksenkatu 2. When making the appointments it should be taken into consideration that the second vaccination is given 12 weeks after the first one. The second appointment is given when receiving the first vaccination. If the person vaccinated has had Covid, the vaccination will be given six months after.

It is planned that the location of the Kauppis vaccinations is changed to the ice hall before Midsummer Day when there are more vaccinations available. People who have received their first vaccination at Kauppis should take note of this because the change is not communicated in person. Healthcare services will inform of the change when the time is confirmed.
