Have you recovered from COVID-19, and are not sure if and when you should get vaccinated, and what vaccine to choose? Do you suffer from a disease that you think could be a contraindication for vaccination? Are you taking any medication? Have you received a first or second dose of COVID-19 vaccine, and subsequently experienced discomfort that may or may not be vaccine-related, and are unsure whether you should receive a third dose and what vaccine to choose? A new protein-based vaccine has arrived in Croatia – is it a solution for you? Every three days, a woman dies from cervical cancer, so should you get vaccinated? You were not vaccinated against HPV in the 8th grade – is now a good time to do so? Arguments to get vaccinated against HPV for boys and for girls. Can you get vaccinated against COVID-19 and HPV at the same time (in a single visit)? Should you be vaccinated against pneumococcal disease?… These and other questions will be answered by an epidemiology specialist at the Croatian Institute of Public Health. Make sure to bring your medical records.

We kindly remind you that all vaccines against COVID-19 will be available at the specified vaccination site every Wednesday, where citizens can receive the first, second or third dose of the vaccine. At Rockefellerova 4, citizens can also be vaccinated with the Nuvaxovid, Novavax vaccine. The vaccine contains the spike protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus (the so-called protein-based vaccine). The vaccine is intended for the first and second dose, 3 weeks apart, for adults.

Children aged 5 and older can also be vaccinated at this vaccination site, and their parents can request consultations before vaccination, also without a previous appointment or registration. Children should come for consultations and vaccinations accompanied by their parents.

Vaccination of young people against HPV at the above site, without previous appointment or registration, is supported by the recommendations of the University of Zagreb Health Care Committee of the Healthy University health promotion programme.
