These persons will be recorded in the system of the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic as private payers and they will be sent by the reservation system to several vaccination points that have concluded a contract with the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic.
In principle, the vaccination points to which these private payers will be sent vaccinate only with Pfizer / BioNTech Comirnaty vaccines. A binding list of vaccination points will be established this week or the next.
