Here you can find information regarding coronavirus vaccinations in Vantaa.

Target groups

Those belonging to the vaccination target groups can have their vaccine at any of Vantaa’s coronavirus vaccination points, except for 5-11-year-olds who will be administered a smaller dose of the BioNTech-Pfizer’s Comirnaty vaccine.

Minors can themselves decide on vaccination, if a health care professional estimates that they can decide on the vaccination due to their age and developmental level. There is no age limit for self-determination: all cases will be separately assessed. If a young person cannot themselves decide on the vaccination or does not want to decide, all guardians’ consent will be required. Consent form, pdf. See also THL’s information letter to the young to be vaccinated.

When you arrive to the vaccination point, please remember:

  • ensure social distancing
  • wear a mask
  • ensure good hand hygiene.

A person accompanying you may only come inside the vaccination place, if you cannot cope with the vaccination situation on your own.

Please let the personnel at the vaccination point know if you feel nervous about the vaccination, so we will take it into account.

Vaccination points for 5-11-year-olds

Vaccinations for 5-11-year-olds are available both with and without appointment at specific vaccination points. Both guardians must sign in a consent form (pdf) before the child can be vaccinated for the first time. We recommend that guardians will in the form before arriving at the vaccination point. A non-official form, signed by the guardians, is also accepted.

  • Arrive on time precisely so that the point is not congested.
