Online portal for people who want to book own vaccines “to be up and running within two weeks”

With this weekend being another ‘milestone’ in Portugal’s ability to roll-out mass-vaccinations, national programme coordinator Henrique Gouveia e Melo has confirmed  the long-promised online portal for people to access in order to sign themselves up for vaccinations will be up and running within two weeks. Reasons for the delay have been that “things have happened” recently (namely controversies over the administration of vaccines) that required resolution “more urgently”, he said.
