The Rovaccinare platform allows, starting with the evening of Monday, September 27, the programming of those who want to be vaccinated with the third dose of the anti-COVID serum.

The Special Telecommunications Service (STS) has completed the implementation of the new functionalities and the necessary optimizations.

Here is what the authorities say about the programming procedure:

“Appointments can be made to administer the booster dose with one of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, in vaccination centers that administer these two types of vaccine.

The first day of vaccination with the third dose is September 28, 2021.

There are two conditions for booster vaccination:

1. Two doses of vaccine given;

2. 180 days after the second dose.

Thus, all persons vaccinated against COVID-19 with two doses (complete or heterologous) and for whom 180 days have passed since the complete schedule can be scheduled in the platform for booster administration.

Regardless of whether the first two doses were administered by platform scheduling

or directly in the vaccination center, all persons who meet the two conditions are

can program for booster dose.

Steps for platform programming for the third dose:

1. Log in to the platform through

entering the e-mail / CNP and password;

2. Select the “Beneficiaries” section:

a. For existing beneficiaries in the account you only need to access

the “Program for booster dose” icon;

b. For new beneficiaries, access the “Add beneficiary” button, fill in the necessary data, and at the end access the “Schedule for booster dose” icon;

3. Choose the vaccination center with the type of vaccine you want (Pfizer or Moderna), date,

time slot, view the schedule summary and complete

the appointment.

4. Finally, go to the “My appointments” section to view the schedule,

respectively for editing or canceling it.

performed by querying the National Electronic Vaccination Register (RENV), where

all vaccinated persons in Romania are registered;

appointments for the third dose, if the above two conditions are met


 Two doses are considered, both for people who have taken dose I and dose II

with one of the Pfizer, Moderna or Astra Zeneca vaccines, as well as for people

who made dose I with one of the three vaccines, and dose II, depending on

medical recommendations, with another type of vaccine among those mentioned.

 At this time, people vaccinated with Johnson & Johnson vaccine are not

eligible for booster dose administration.

Dose 3 is strongly recommended:

 people at high risk of developing severe forms – vulnerable people:

those over 65, with chronic diseases (regardless of age), people in the centers

months after receiving the 2nd dose of the vaccine, regardless of whether they have a history of going through

regardless of the initial scheme. Thus, people vaccinated with Astra Zeneca will receive

May, for persons immunized with this vaccine it is not necessary, at this time, to
