  1. My husband and I have been trying to get vaccinated, at last we get a temp amka, only of course not eligible for an appointment as we are not in the right platform of the young! Greece should take a lesson from other countries and operate a walk in vaccination service, but if course that would be far too easy!

    • keeptalkinggreece

      platforms are open for all over 15

    • Once you get the AMKA, you have to wait for it to be activated before you can book an appointment. Mine took about 10 days, but you just have to wait. Go to the pharmacy to book an appointment.
