As Italy opens up coronavirus vaccinations to the general public, here's where and how to book your jab.

Who is eligible for a vaccine in Italy right now?

Having finished vaccinating most healthcare workers and people in nursing homes, Italy continues to expand its vaccine campaign to its next highest priority group: people aged 80 and over.

But because the Italian medicines agency has recommended using the AstraZeneca vaccine only on under-55s, millions of doses that began arriving in Italy in February have been offered to younger, healthier adults working in essential sectors.

While the timing varies from region to region, in most parts of the country over-80s are being invited to get their jab now. Some regions have also extended vaccinations to the clinically vulnerable, over-70s and key workers including teachers, police and firefighters. 

For the time being, no one outside one of these categories is yet eligible for a Covid-19 jab. Find out where you come on Italy’s vaccination priority list here.

How do I get a jab?

Even if you are in one of the priority groups currently being offered the vaccine, you still need to book your slot.

Vaccination is currently by registration only and you should not go to a vaccination centre without an appointment

READ ALSO:

Most regional health services now allow eligible residents to register online or by phone. You can also make an appointment on someone else’s behalf.

Depending on your region, you may be able to register via your usual doctor or in a pharmacy too.

You will be asked to choose where to go for your shot when you book your appointment. You can find a list of vaccination centres at the bottom of this page.

Depending on your circumstances, you will be asked for your codice fiscale (tax code) and/or your tessera sanitaria (health card). For more information, check the official websites listed below.

  1. Why are any links provided not presented in English? English speakers are your clients, not Italians. Please translate everything.

  2. I’m a bit confused by the article’s use of the words “registration” and “register” … for a vaccine. Are you using these words interchangeably with the word “booking.” Or are there two separate stages … first you register, then you book an appointment when your “stage” comes up? As my Italian is still far from perfect, and my region has a “prenotazione” number , I like to know beforehand exactly what I am ringing for!
    Hope someone can help.
    Thanks

  3. as an italian citizen living abroad , i can not register on any of the sites for a vaccination while in italy
