Re: Registering for vaccine

I heard from my doc that some people without any major health problems register as a "highest risk category". When they come to get the vax, they are asked for a confirmation certificate which they obviously don't have and then go back home without the shot.

Normally they just move up the queue, but sometimes to avoid losing a dose they make a shot to a random unregistered person instead.

There will be a possibility to register on this site ..... for all we know, they put that site online January 2020
This is about the 4th incarnation of that site since January. Originally there were details of how to register but said it was blocked until Jan 18th as all were already booked. Each iteration has made it less clear and less easy to register.

I am scheduled to receive my first jab in less than two weeks. Just received a phone call this morning from the national hotline asking me what my justification was for booking an appointment given that I'm under 75. I explained that I received a letter from the CHUV oncology department that says I am considered at risk and can be vaccinated in the first priority group.

Received the ok to get vaccinated, but was advised that in addition to the attestation letter from CHUV, I request a signed and stamped letter from my GP confirming that I am considered at risk. The guy stressed that it's really important I have correct documentation, otherwise I risk being turned away on the day.

Moral of the story: don't even consider trying to jump the queue. If you do not fulfil the requirements for being vaccinated early, and do not have correct documentation from a recognized medical professional, you will not be vaccinated.

I think that might be as a result of queue jumping in the cantons that don’t (or didn’t until now) request medical certificates or doctor referrals for the high risk people.
The cantons mentioned in the article I read were Vaud, Jura and Fribourg where they relied on the honesty and integrity of the people registering to be vaccinated.
