COVID-19 vaccination

Who can get vaccinated?

Anyone from the age 12 who wishes to get vaccinated can do so. For vaccination, it is not necessary to make an appointment in advance, but it is possible to do that, so that you will not have to wait in the queue. You can come to Kaja vaccination centre (E. Vilde tee 118) or to mobile vaccination sites also without advance booking.

For vaccination, appointments can be made in advance at the national digital registry or by calling coronavirus hotline 1247 (+372 600 1247) (Mon-Sun 08:00-20:00).
If you are unable to come to vaccination at the booked time, please cancel your reservation also at the digital registry.

Information on issuing EU COVID-19 certificates to foreign nationals

Starting from 16.08.2021, the service centres of the Social Insurance Board are accepting applications for creating EU COVID certificates by Estonians and foreigners who have been issued the Estonian ID-Code, who do not have the possibility to create the certificates by themselves at the Patient Portal (digilugu.ee).
 
Until August 2021, certificates were issued by the Health and Wellness Information Systems Centre (TEHIK), located in Tallinn. Now, people will have a chance to get the service from various service centres of the Social Insurance Board all over Estonia.
 
In addition to Tallinn, EU COVID certificates which involve proof of vaccination, proof of a negative coronavirus test result or proof of having had COVID-19, shall also be issued in the service centres of the Social Insurance Board in Tartu, Pärnu, Rakvere, Rapla, Türi, Valga, Viljandi, Võru, Haapsalu, Jõgeva, Jõhvi, Kohtla-Järve, Kuressaare, Kärdla, Narva, Paide and Põlva. Specific addresses and opening hours of the service centres are available here (website in Estonian): https://sotsiaalkindlustusamet.ee/et/organisatsioon-kontaktid/kontaktid/sotsiaalkindlustusameti-klienditeenindused
 
The foreigners who turn to the Social Insurance Board for getting a COVID certificate, must present their Estonian ID-code and a document of identification. The application form may be prefilled and printed. Please take the application to the service centre of your convenience. The EU COVID certificate will be sent to the e-mail of the applicant within three working days. Although the vaccination certificate can already be created after the first shot, please bear in mind that for participating in different events held in Estonia, the vaccination must be fully completed. The service is free for everyone.
