“According to the data of the Center of Registers, children can obtain an e-passport. health platform will only be possible from 15 December. You will need to download the Opportunity Passport to your mobile device, print it out or just take a photo and have it on your phone. The European Union (EU) digital COVID certificate can be used instead of the opportunity passport – it can be downloaded from e. While waiting for health on the 15th of December, other documents proving that the child has been vaccinated or become ill are also valid, ”points out Kristina Nemaniūtė-Gagė, Chairwoman of the Lithuanian Pharmacy Association (LVA).

She adds that children, like personal health care facilities, cannot come to pharmacies alone, they must be accompanied by their parents, adoptive parents or other carers. According to the legislation, the sale of medicinal products or the provision of other pharmaceutical services is restricted to persons over 16 years of age.

“With that in mind, please do not send your children alone, as the pharmacist will not be able to help him and print the opportunity passport. We remind you that in order to withdraw a child’s passport at the pharmacy, you do not need to take the child together, it is enough to show your identity document and the child’s document to the pharmacy or simply say the child’s name and personal identification code orally, ”comments K. Nemaniūtė-Gagė.

Bearing in mind the requirements to have a passport for children from 12 years of age. will take effect during the holiday season, the LVA chair recommends that parents withdraw their passports for their children online. Without such an opportunity, she suggests not waiting for the last day, but also not giving up unnecessarily urgently, because the earlier the opportunity passport is removed – the earlier it expires.

“We will continue to use all available resources in the country’s pharmacy network to contribute to vaccination and ensure that passports are available to anyone who has been vaccinated, has Covid-19 or has the required amount of antibodies in their blood,” she said.

Under the current regulations, Covid-19 vaccines can only be given to adults in pharmacies, all others are invited to register with vaccination centers or personal health care facilities.

From December 28. another change will take effect – the opportunity passport will be valid for 7 months or 210 days. After this period, the population will need to have an antibody test and, if this is not enough, they will have to be vaccinated with a third dose of COVID-19 to be eligible for a passport. This rule does not apply to people under the age of 18 who have been vaccinated with Comirnaty or Spikevax or have developed COVID-19 and whose disease has been confirmed by a PCR test. Only adults are currently vaccinated with the third dose of the vaccine in Lithuania.
