Have you checked out the leaflet that came with the medication?, look at side effects and see what action you should take, or check it on Google.
Or, if the leaflet is in Greek only, try googling it.

Re: Post-Brexit British nationals in Cyprus to also be able to vote in municipal elections

I thought we could already vote in Municipality elections and we could stand as a councillor, but not as mukhtar/mayor. I remember voting 5 years ago.

Re: Alpha Bank New On Line Security Requirements

Devil,

So what did you do? Did you have to buy a new Smartphone. Did you have to buy one of those expensive ones at around €1,000 or could you get away with something less expensive?

Alpha Bank New On Line Security Requirements

Following EU directives, Alpha Bank is now requiring that you have on your mobile an app for 'push' notifications. I tried to download this app from the Google icon on the app page and got the message that my mobile will not accept the app. Will Alpha fund the purchase of a new mobile so that I can ...

HIC,
Pointing out the failures of the UK government is not a suitable answer to poor EU performances. Two wrongs do not make a right.

Those stats are pretty meaningless for inter-country comparison. Any country with decent track and trace will be heavily penalised for it. They only show merit for comparing how one country is doing over time.

I think there has already been too much administrating of the AZ vaccine and we should have more administering.

Re: Shot themselves in the foot

Have the EU shot themselves in the foot over the AstraZeneca vaccine by banning it temporarily because it is linked to the UK. Could it just be sour grapes over Brexit?.

Varky, if you read galexinda's messages, you will see that it is 'non-urgent' treatment which is cancelled. I would have thought your attending an oncology centre would be urgent.
I agree with you. I have already decided that come what may I am going to attend the hospital.

Re: Murray

A sad day indeed. I watched F1 religiously every Sunday no matter what time it was live on TV. But that all stopped when we moved to Cyprus in 2004. Watching the footage on TV in a bar with English commentary coming from another source felt too unfamiliar and just didn't work for me. I tried to get...

Re: Government cancels all operations in Cyprus ...

I am totally confused as to whether I can attend an oncology clinic at Limassol General Hospital next Wednesday or an private optical optical clinic on Thursday. I don't see how attending a clinic that has no bed facility is going to alleviate any shortage of Covid-19 bed spaces. I thought the new d...

Re: Vaccination slots for 71+ open up on Tuesday 22nd February

JimX,

Not sure if you are interested but I booked yesterday via the GESY Portal for myself and my wife but in Limassol for next Friday. Plenty of spaces. The problem it seems is they are not allocating sufficient doses to Paphos.For us its not much further to travel to Limassol as it is to Paphos.

Re: What is going on with these age related Covid vaccines?

I note that those that are praising the system are those that have been able to get on the system and get their vaccination. What about those in the higher, at risk, age groups that have not. Whilst the system, I accept, is good the way it is being applied leaves loopholes.
