The national health service (SNS) is administering the free COVID-19 vaccinations across Portugal. This is free to anyone in Portugal, regardless of residence status. You must be registered with the SNS, however, and have a 'Número de Utente', a user number, to be notified of the appointment that will be set for you. You can now register with SNS Online. Go to this website: Registration-for-SNS-Utente-number.pdf (safecommunitiesportugal.com) for details on what information and documents are required as well as the specific email address to use.

You’ll be asked to provide the following information and documentation (scanned) in your email. These requirements vary slightly, by region, as you will see in the document linked above. Please, do not fail to provide any required data or document.
1. Full name
2. Date of birth
3. Nationality
4. Place/town of Birth
5. Passport or residence permit number
6. Full address
7. Phone / mobile number (Portuguese)

If you have applied for a residency permit but have yet to receive it: INCLUDE a receipt of your payment for the residency permit as issued by SEF, or your proof of an appointment to obtain a residency permit, or other proof of a similar request issued electronically by SEF.

This is very exciting news as our SEF meetings are not scheduled for several weeks. We would like to get in the queue. But when I follow the link you provide to safecommunitiesportugal.com...I am unable to find any way to enter the information you reference. Can you provide a specific link?

Thanks very much!

This is information on how Portugal will be distributing the vaccine to people who want it. Your opinion is irrelevant to the topic at hand.

Only 2 of the 6 vaccines being used in Portugal are m-RNA based ones that work at the genetic level
