Self-scheduling vaccination platform opens to over-50s

With 16% of the country now fully vaccinated, and vaccines arriving thick and fast, the DGS health authority self-scheduling platform is opening up from today for the over-50s, reports SIC television news. To be fair, the page doesn’t show this yet, but presumably it will as the day progresses (click here). Vaccine task force coordinator Henrique Gouveia e Melo says the number of vaccines arriving in Portugal will see authorities return to vaccinating up to 100,000 people per day. Right now, 80,000 people are being vaccinated daily.
