Vaccination DiscriminationIn Letters to the editor, News · 11 Jun 2021, 01:00 · 0 Comments
Editor, It is now clear that expats with no SNS number will be very unlikely to receive a vaccination.
I’m over 50 and registered online using a Portuguese mobile number on the dedicated webpage for those without an NHS/SNS number. No problem!
Except...no SMS or telephone call ever comes to schedule the vaccination day and time. I’ve physically gone to vaccination locations in Aljezur and Lagos to try there and been turned away with a printout of the URL to the site I already registered on weeks ago. Meanwhile, those in lower age brackets who have an SNS number are being vaccinated without delay.
