Greece has recorded over 700 cases of the A(H1N1) strain of the virus, most of them mild.
Greek hospitals are currently treating 15 people including four serious cases, one of them a British teenage girl.
"We decided that the entire population, all citizens and residents, without any exception, will be vaccinated against the flu," Health Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos said after a ministerial meeting.
Greece has already earmarked 40 million euros for vaccines and has placed orders with Novartis, Glaxo and Sanofi for 8 million vaccine doses, to be received gradually by January.
Vaccine experts say people will likely need two doses of vaccine to be protected from H1N1 swine flu, so Greece would need a total of 24 million doses to vaccinate its entire population. Other countries are taking similar steps.
"Greece will order 16 million more doses from the same companies in the future," a health ministry official who declined to be named told Reuters.
"We are only waiting for the European Union's approval to start vaccinating everyone."
