During the first quarantine, it was very difficult to carry out the tasks of paying new types of benefits to various groups of people quickly and smoothly. The experience gained by the organization at that time, the development of new benefit and payment systems, and the development of effective inter-agency cooperation have provided a good basis for the subsequent stages of pandemic management.

All information in the eHealth system

Seniors receiving the benefit did not experience any additional worries about submitting applications or data – they only needed to be vaccinated under the full vaccination schedule. The lists of vaccinated recipients were handed over to Sodra Center of Registers.

“In recent years, a number of projects of national significance have been implemented, using the e-health system and the data collected in it. The additional exploitation of the eHealth system demonstrates its importance and potential, while at the same time requiring special attention to be paid to the maintenance of the system. The Center of Registers is always ready to actively contribute to the initiatives aimed at effective pandemic management with its competence and available resources, ”emphasizes Saulius Urbanavičius, General Director of the Center of Registers.

Benefits are already reaching recipients

Another 2,000 residents who withdraw their pensions at Lithuanian post offices will be able to withdraw the 100 euro benefit together with the pension.

We are happy to introduce benefits for vaccines for seniors, ”says Jonas Sadauskas, Director of the Lithuanian Postal Network.
