Estimated schedule for coronavirus vaccinations has been published – appointments are now available to 45–49-year-olds


Espoo has published an estimated schedule for coronavirus vaccinations during the spring and summer. It seems that our working-age population will receive their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine no later than in July. Coronavirus vaccination appointments are now available to Espoo residents who turn 45 this year or are older than 45. In addition, appointments can be booked by people who belong to risk group 1 or 2 determined by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL).

The advance voting period in the municipal elections is 26 May–8 June 2021 – check the Espoo polling stations


There are several advance polling stations in Espoo, some of which are outdoors, so-called drive-in polling stations that can be directly accessed by car. The opening hours of the polling stations vary and some of the times are reserved for voters belonging to COVID-19 risk groups.

Espoo’s EU super year 2022


Europe is invited to Espoo in 2022! Espoo has been chosen to organise the annual conference of the Eurocities network. The aim of this conference is to develop sustainable solutions for the future together. With the help of EU-level cooperation and our extensive contact network, we can achieve great things.

Espoo is a European and international city


In honour of Europe Day, it is good to remember that as a city, we want to look outwards. Working together and cooperation are important values not only for Espoo but for Europe. At a time when societal changes require joint cross-border efforts, we need international cooperation forums.
