Just received my first dose of the vaccine today.

Huge sense of relief after several weeks of worrying about how and when we can get the jabs given our situation as new residents in Portugal, and not even having received our residence permit or national healthcare number yet.

We made a visit to our nearest vaccination center yesterday, and enquired about what we needed to do, and they took our details and copies of documents and said they’d try to help us, and sure enough, Anthony received a phone call earlier this afternoon asking if we could make it for an appointment this evening. Did not have to think twice about it!
