And the good news is that through the EU Cyprus has secured a further 565,000 AZ vaccines. http://www.newsincyprus.com/news/290739 ... h-vaccines

Re: S1 Form holder in Cyprus - EHIC still valid.

Medical records

When Gesy started did they say our medical records kept in folders would be transferred to the computer system ?

Has it happened for anyone ?

Certainly not mine ?

Yes it is going to take a long time to vaccinate all the people in Cyprus . The government initially plan for vaccination to go on until mid 2022 .

Clicking on the link I get this message “ We’re sorry, but Pluto TV is currently unavailable in your location. We’re working hard to bring Pluto TV to this area, so stay tuned to find out when.”

Re: Vaccination portal

Good point Dee , I know a lot of people have found it hard to set up a user account .

I think I read somewhere that if people are of the age to get the vaccine they can get their GP to arrange it .
