The national registration system can be accessed through the website koronastop.lt. It also enables to register another person for vaccination.

“As has been the case up to now, you can choose the vaccine, date, time and the municipality you want to get vaccinated in. Irrespective of the place or registration or residence, your regular clinic or other circumstances,” Health Minister Arunas Dulkys said in a video released by the ministry on Monday.

This week, Lithuania starts administering COVID-19 vaccine shots to people aged 45 years and over throughout the country. Some municipalities have already started vaccinating this age group.

To register for a COVID-19 vaccine shot, a person will have to confirm his or her identity via the e-government gateway.

All sixty municipalities had joined the platform, Aiste Suksta, spokeswoman for the health minister, told BNS.

To those having additional questions about registration, the ministry advises to watch videos published on the website koronastop.lt. It also reminds about a possibility to register by calling 1808 if a person has no access to the electronic system.

To be ready for any disruptions in the functioning of the national registration system, the ministry had put in place an alternative for registration via the pre-patient registration system, Suksta said.

“The system is not new, it has just been equipped with an additional module. If disruptions to the system are short-term, the supplier will be ready to eliminate them. If the system cannot be restored, there is an alternative in place,” she added.

The service of the national registration system is being provided by Tarptautine Skubios Medicinos Akademija. The additional module cost 450,000 euros.
