What are the Different Types of Vaccines Available?
Currently, there are three types of vaccines available in Romania: Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and AstraZeneca. All three vaccines have been authorized by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and are safe for use. It is recommended that you get vaccinated with any of these vaccines, as they all offer protection against COVID-19.
What are the Eligibility Criteria for Vaccination?
The eligibility criteria for vaccination are constantly changing, depending on the availability of vaccines and the number of cases in the country. Currently, the following groups are eligible for vaccination:
|Eligibility Criteria||Age Group|
|Persons with chronic diseases||16+|
|Persons aged 65 years and above||65+|
|Persons aged 18-64 years old with occupational exposure to COVID-19||18-64|
How are Vaccinations Conducted?
Vaccinations are conducted at registered vaccination centers across the country. When you book an appointment for vaccination, you will be provided with the details of the center and the date and time of your appointment.
When you arrive at the center, you will be required to present your identification documents and your appointment confirmation. You will then be vaccinated by a trained healthcare professional, who will administer the vaccine through an injection in your upper arm.
What are the Possible Side Effects of Vaccination?
Like any other vaccine, COVID-19 vaccines may cause some side effects. However, these side effects are usually mild and short-lived. The most common side effects include pain and swelling at the vaccination site, fever, fatigue, headaches, and muscle pain.
If you experience any severe symptoms after vaccination, it is recommended that you seek medical attention immediately. However, it is important to remember that these side effects are rare, and the benefits of getting vaccinated far outweigh the risks.
How Many Doses of Vaccine are Required?
The number of vaccine doses required depends on the type of vaccine being used. Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines require two doses administered several weeks apart, while AstraZeneca requires two doses administered 12 weeks apart.
It is important to remember that you are not fully vaccinated until you have received both doses of the vaccine and have waited for an additional two weeks to allow your body to build up immunity.
