In the form of free download of data from the internet on their mobile phone they will receive them 50 GB vaccinated adolescents 15 – 17 years, as stipulated in the relevant amendment tabled today Tuesday by the Ministry of Health.
In this way, the Freedom Pass/Data, which had been announced by the Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis can be used by the beneficiaries whether they have a mobile phone with a contract or a prepaid phone. The "voucher", which has not yet started operating, will have data consumption power for three months, will affect adolescents who have had at least one dose of the vaccine by 31 December, while there will be one for each AMKA that will be declared on the platform.
Although as indicated in the report of the General Accounting Office of the State, which accompanies the amendment, there is no cost estimate as no relevant data has been sent by the accelerating ministries, the total cost will depend on the number of beneficiaries but also the cost of the special digital application that will be required.
However, in another point it is pointed out that this action will not cause further expenditure in the budget since for its implementation the credit of 50 million euros, in the Information Society (ΚτΠ) where the program will "run", which has been planned since the summer with the initial Freedom Pass for vaccinated young people by 25 years.
Analytically, in accordance with the amendment introduced for a vote in Parliament, provided that beneficiaries of their package 50 GB will be natural persons 15 – 17 years, who will receive them through a check system (voucher) provided that minors of mobile telephony connections have received at least the first or only dose of the coronary artery vaccine by 31/12/2021.
The offer will be credited by the IS to each vaccinated person of this age in the form of a free data package. For this reason a special application will be created accessible through the Unified Digital Portal of the State (gov.gr).
The aim of this action to "reward" the minors who will be vaccinated is - according to the amendment - to contribute to the strengthening of the immune wall against the virus., while it is considered an appropriate and necessary measure after the beginning of the school year and given the mobility of this age group (schools, tutorials, social life) to significantly reduce coronary transmission.
As these are minor mobile users, the process will undertake either one of the parents or one of the minor custodians, who will enter the platform to be created and using his taxisnet passwords, will apply for the Freedom Pass / Data issue for a specific mobile number stating:
- the mobile operator, in which the number in question is activated.
- The AMKA or the temporary Social Security Registration Number or the temporary insurance and care number of Foreigners of the vaccinated minor.
- His contact details and in particular his mobile phone number and optionally his e-mail address.
To verify these data, the information system of the application will interact with both the national Vaccination Register against Koronoi and the tax register of AADE.
And through the KEP
The application for the grant Freedom Pass/Data by one of the custodians of the vaccinated child and in the KEP, while the voucher can not be administered more than once per AMKA.
The personal data that will be registered on the action platform - as indicated - will be collected and further processed only for the purposes of the action, while they will be kept for a period of two years and then deleted.
Upon completion of the application, and if the necessary conditions are met, the details of the number to which the data package will be assigned will be forwarded to the mobile operator. The Freedom Pass / Data package will remain activated for a period of three months from its activation, while after this time it will turn off automatically.
