Vaccination and testing point in Tartu: Raatuse Clinic

Vaccination and testing against coronavirus in Tartu is performed at the Confido Clinic, Tartu Raatuse Health Center.

Who can get vaccinated?

We expect to vaccinate all Estonian residents from the age of 12. Please bring your ID to get vaccinated!

  • Vaccination may be temporarily delayed if you have a high fever, are currently suffering from COVID-19 or have been in close contact.
  • It is recommended that COVID-19 patients be vaccinated with a single dose 6 months after recovery, and then the vaccination course can be considered complete. Even if more than 6 months have passed since the onset of COVID-19 infection, it is recommended that only one dose be given for long-term protection. A second dose is not required for survivors, and the vaccine may be more reactogenic and have more side effects. However, if a second dose is very necessary (for example, to travel to a country where single-dose vaccination is not accepted), a second dose may be given.
  • If a person develops COVID-19 within 2 weeks of receiving the first dose of the vaccine, they should be considered infected and vaccinated with a single dose, preferably within 6 months of recovery. Then the vaccination course can be considered complete. A person who has been vaccinated with a single dose and who develops COVID-19 more than two weeks after the first dose but before the second dose does not require a second dose and the vaccination course may be considered complete.

SARS coronavirus PCR test from nasopharynx

How does the SARS coronavirus PCR test from the nasopharynx work?

What does it show?

Whether you are infected with the coronavirus and potentially infectious to others.

Why do it?

For the purpose of traveling or attending an event to prove you’re not contagious to others.

How is the sample collected?

From the nasopharynx with a special cotton swab.

How long does it take to get the result?

The results will appear in the patient portal (Digilugu) within 48 hours after testing. We will send the result by e-mail with a link for those who have asked for a certificate.

Is it suitable for travelling?

Yes, it is suitable as a travel document or to attend an event, but only if a certificate has been ordered with the test (extra charge).

Vaccination against SARS coronavirus

Kuidas toimub vaktsineerimine?

Ootame vaktsineerima kõiki Eesti elanikke alates 5. eluaastast. Vaktsineerimiseks palume kaasa võtta isikut tõendava dokumendi! Lisaks vaktsineeritakse Ukrainast pärit sõjapõgenikke - seda teostatakse AINULT aadressil Töökoja 1, Tallinn.

  • Ole kohal TÄPSELT määratud vaktsineerimise ajaks. Kui hilinete, siis on sellest mõjutatud ka järgmised patsiendid.
  • Vaktsineerimisele tulles tuleb kanda maski. Juhul kui tunnete end haigena, palume sellest meile märku anda lühinumbril 1330
  • Vaktsiinisüst tehakse õlavarrelihasesse. Sujuva vaktsineerimise tagamiseks soovitame riietuda nii, et õlavart oleks kerge paljastada.
  • Enne vaktsiinidoosi saamist toimub registreerimine: kontrollitakse dokumente, nõustatakse ja antakse lugemiseks vaktsiini infoleht. Soovi korral võite infolehe koju kaasa võtta.
  • Vaktsiinidoosi saamiseks palume allkirjastada nõusoleku vormi.
  • Seejärel teostab väljaõppinud õde vaktsineerimise.
  • Arvestage, et pärast vaktsineerimist pead veel 15 minutit kohapeal tervishoiutöötaja jälgimise all olema juhuks, kui pärast vaktsineerimist peaks enesetunne halvenema.
  • Juhime tähelepanu, et COVID-19 vaktsiinide ja teiste vaktsiinide manustamise vahe on soovituslikult vähemalt 14 päeva.

Palume arvestada, et vaktsineerimise järgselt võivad mõned inimesed kogeda kõrvalnähte. Seega ärge planeerige vaktsineerimise päevaks füüsilist koormust.

Confido poolt kasutatavad vaktsiinid

Confido kasutab vaid Ravimiameti poolt heaks kiidetud vaktsiine. Manustatavate vaktsiinide valik sõltub vaktsiinide tarnetest ning kättesaadavusest. Confidos on seni kasutatud järgmiseid vaktsiine: Pfizer-BioNTech Comirnaty, Spikevax (COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna), COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen, Novavax.

Esimene ja teine tõhustusdoos

  • Pfizer/BioNTech vaktsiin Comirnaty – esmasest vaktsineerimiskuurist on möödas 3 kuud;
  • Moderna vaktsiin Spikevax – esmasest vaktsineerimiskuurist on möödas 3 kuud;
  • AstraZeneca vaktsiin Vaxzevria – esmasest vaktsineerimiskuurist on möödas 3 kuud;

Vaccination against SARS coronavirus for children

How does vaccination work?

Confido vaccinates children aged 5 and up. Separate doses and vaccines are prescribed for two age groups: 5-11 year olds and 12-17 year olds. Vaccines for children are available at the Freedom Square vaccination site (no booking needed) and Veerenni Vaccination Centre in Tallinn (prior booking needed).

  • Be there PRECISELY at the scheduled time for vaccination. If you arrive late, the patients after you will also be affected.
  • A mask must be worn when attending a vaccination. We strongly advise that children also wear a mask. If you have fallen ill, please let us know on 1330.
  • Bring your child in for a vaccination at a time when they are not upset or tired.
  • The vaccine is injected into a muscle in the upper arm. To ensure a smooth vaccination, we recommend that the child dress so that they may easily expose their upper arm.
  • Registration is required before receiving a dose of the vaccine: personal identification will be checked, someone will be available for questions and to hand out a vaccination leaflet to read. You can take the leaflet home with you if you wish.
  • We ask the parent to sign a consent form in order to receive the vaccine dose.
  • A trained nurse will then administer the vaccine.
  • Take into consideration that the child will need to be monitored by a healthcare professional for another 15 minutes after vaccination in the event that they feel unwell afterwards.
  • If possible, get your booster shot as a parent and your child’s first vaccination dose at the same time to reduce any anxiety your child may experience.

Please note that some children may experience side effects after vaccination. Therefore, do not plan physical exercise for the child on the day of vaccination.

Which vaccine is used for children?

The Pfizer/BioNTechi Comirnaty vaccine has been approved for 5-11 year olds. This age group receives a smaller quantity compared to adults (10 µg instead of 30 µg) and as two doses. The second vaccine dose is administered six weeks after the first one. The Pfizer vaccine used to vaccinate children is not exactly the same as the Pfizer vaccine used to vaccinate adolescents (aged 12-17) and adults. The Pfizer vaccine for the younger age group is in a separate package.

Estonian experts recommend vaccinating children who have contracted and recovered from COVID-19 in the same way as adults, i.e. with a single dose six months after recovery.

Which vaccine is used for older children?

The Pfizer/BioNTechi Comirnaty or Moderna Spikevax vaccine is used to vaccinate 12-17 year olds.

Why should you vaccinate your children against COVID-19?

Although children have a small chance of becoming seriously ill from COVID-19, they will:

  • contract the virus causing COVID-19
  • spread COVID-19 to others
  • be at risk of both short- and long-term complications
  • be at risk of a severe case of COVID-19

Vaccinated children can attend kindergarten, school and leisure activities safely.

No booking is needed at the Freedom Square vaccination site – all you have to do is bring your child.
