According to Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, young people have shown great interest in freedom-pass.
In his message, Mr. Mitsotakis stated that “the platform for the Freedom Pass was opened yesterday and 120,000 young people aged 18 to 25 who have been vaccinated have already applied. Support government efforts to protect public health. Make an appointment here: https://emvolio.gov.gr/ “.
Deputy Minister of Digital Government Georgios Georgantas previously spoke about the Freedom Pass, noting that the total number of beneficiaries, aged 18 to 25, is estimated at 250,000. He stressed that after the announcement of the “freedom-pass” program on June 28 of this year, more than 500,000 young people have planned to receive vaccinations. At the same time, the representative of the government noted that there is an approach to the indicator of 30% in this category. “We want to maintain this rate of vaccination so that in late August or early September we are close to 70% of the planned,” said Mr. Georgantas, noting that tomorrow Greece will overcome the barrier of 10 million doses of vaccine.

All young people between the ages of 18 and 25, i.e. Born between 01/01/1996 and 31/12/2003 are eligible for the Freedom Pass. The only condition is to get at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
