Companies can sign up for staff collective vaccination as of May 3

Companies that want to vaccinate their employees in an organized way will be able to do this as of May 3, according to Health Ministry's release April 29.

In parallel to individual vaccination, the manavakcina.lv site will provide an opportunity for an employer to prepare information on the number of employees to be vaccinated, choose the vaccination performer, the type of vaccination - either to go to the vaccination establishment or to invite the vaccinator to the premises of the company.

Collective vaccination of employees of critical energy supply and information and communication technology companies is already ongoing.

As of May 3, every resident of Latvia can apply for the vaccine against Covid-19, and accordingly all other industries will be vaccinated according to the information submitted by employers to the selected vaccinator.

Only persons who have agreed voluntarily and have given consent to the processing of their personal data for the purposes of vaccination can be included in the list.

It is important for businesses and authorities to take into account the fact that all employees are not advised to be vaccinated at the same time, given that there are common reactions such as tenderness, redness and swelling at the injection site, as well as acute muscle pain, headache, swelling or fever after vaccination.
