Launch of COVID-19 vaccination in private medical offices

During the week of 2 August, the first vaccinations will be offered in the offices of general practitioners and paediatricians. Thus, any resident or non-resident with a Luxembourg registration number (matricule), not previously vaccinated and aged 16 years and older (from 12 years for mRNA vaccines) wishing to be vaccinated against COVID-19, will be able to visit one of the medical offices participating in the vaccination campaign. The interested person will have to present an identity document to the physician and have a registration number with the National Register of Natural Persons (RNPP).

In a first pilot phase, 4 medical offices located in Esch-sur-Alzette, Mersch, Redange-sur-Attert and Strassen, will offer the COVID-19 vaccination. Then, for the weeks of 9 and 16 August, additional medical offices across the country will be added to the list of participants, in order to ensure a homogeneous territorial coverage. The list of participating physicians will be updated regularly and can be consulted here.

The participating physicans can order Janssen (Johnson&Johnson), AstraZeneca and BioNTech/Pfizer vaccines, which will be stored and administered according to the applicable standards. The choice of vaccine will be made in consultation with the vaccinating practitioner.

For Minister of Health Paulette Lenert, the participation of private physicians marks another important step in the vaccination campaign: "I would like to thank in particular the AMMD and the Cercle des médecins-généraux, as well as the paediatricians, for their efforts and support throughout our vaccination campaign and in particular for the deployment of vaccination in private medical offices. Physicians are the first persons of trust for their patients and play an essential role in the success of the vaccination campaign in Luxembourg. Together we can defeat COVID-19."
