Whether you believe in taking the Covid jab or not is one thing, but if you do decide to go ahead, in Estremoz it is a pretty simple procedure to follow.
How to get an appointment for your covid jab
If you are already registered with the national health system in Portugal and have your Numero Utente, then you should receive a call from the health authority when your age bracket for vaccination is reached.
If you are registered as a resident in Portugal, then you are eligible for a Número Utente, which gives you access to all public health services and should be shown when visiting the health centre, for diagnostic tests and therapy, and also used at the pharmacy when purchasing prescription medications.
In Estremoz, getting your Número Utente it is a pretty straight-forward procedure. You simply go to the Centro de Saude from 9:00 to 13:00hrs and 14:00 to 17:30hrs, Monday to Friday, with the required documentation.
