After a long wait, Zurich cantonal authorities opened up coronavirus registrations to the general public on March 29th.
In the most cases, registration does not mean you can book an appointment just yet – but you can register your interest and you will be contacted when the jab is ready.
However for those over 75 and for healthcare workers, you will be able to book directly by going online.
Zurich, Switzerland’s most populous canton, is currently lagging behind the rest of the country when it comes to vaccines.
