Foreign nationals without insurance registering for Covid vaccine

The central register for Covid vaccines opened to foreign nationals and Czechs without health insurance on Friday. According to the Health Ministry they will get the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and the price should not exceed 850 crowns.

The system will also direct foreign nationals to centres with English-speaking staff. It is not clear how many people this may concern. According to Interior Ministry statistics there were over 656,000 foreigners living in the country at the end of the first quarter. Over 344,000 of them have permanent residence in the Czech Republic.
