How to book an appointment for a corona vaccination

Vaccinations are given by appointment only. You can make an appointment electronically or by phone.

Appointment booking electronically

Book an appointment electronically at bookcovidvaccine.fi. It takes two injections to be fully protected by the vaccine. You can book the second appointment at the same time as the first.

For the appointment booking you need bank codes or a mobile certificate and information about where you will be vaccinated.

Booking an appointment on behalf of another person

To be able to act on behalf of another person, you must have a written mandate.

You can make a mandate for another person to act on your behalf here Suomi.fi. You must identify yourself with bank codes or a mobile certificate in the service.

In the suomi.fi service, you can give or ask for a mandate for another person, e.g. the right to act on your behalf.
