  • If you are over 16 years old, you are entitled to a free COVID-19 vaccination.
  • The vaccines used in Iceland are all effective against COVID-19.
  • The vaccines are safe but some people may not receive certain vaccines, e.g. due to allergies or certain diseases.
  • If you have a severe allergy, you need to talk to your doctor before getting vaccinated.
  • It is not possible to choose the type of vaccine or make an appointment for vaccination.
  • Vaccination notifications will be sent via text message. Those who do not receive a text message can be vaccinated when an open house is advertised for their age group.
  • If you should be given priority due to diabetes or other illness, you need to talk to your healthcare provider so that you can register for a vaccination sooner.
