COVID-19 Vaccination Moved to Primary Healthcare Centres

By Yelena

The mass vaccination centre in Reykjavík’s Laugardalshöll stadium is officially no longer in operation. As of today, COVID-19 vaccination will be offered at primary healthcare centres. First and second doses for those five years of age and older as well as booster shots for those 16 years of age and up will be offered by appointment. As previously, COVID-19 vaccination in Iceland will be entirely free of charge.

Each primary healthcare centre will administer vaccinations on specific days, according to a notice from Capital Area Primary Healthcare Centres. At the moment, only Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines will be offered. In order to be eligible for a booster shot, more than four months must have passed from an individual’s second dose of vaccination. For those who have contracted COVID-19, Icelandic health authorities recommend waiting at least three months before receiving a booster shot, and up to six months in some cases.

Those who wish to receive COVID-19 vaccination at a primary healthcare centre must book an appointment through (using electronic ID). Parents and guardians can book appointments for children 15 years of age and younger. Those who do not have an electronic ID can call their local healthcare clinic to book an appointment.

Over 78% of Iceland’s total population is fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and over 54% have received a booster shot.
