The success of “Walk-In” Vaccination centres is leading the government to consider holding them at larger centres to cater for a bigger number of people.
Evagoras Tambouris, acting head of Nursing Services said the first two days are on a trial basis. We see an interest and response by the people and now we are making plans so that vaccinations are held at larger centres and increase the number of available vaccines to 200-300, depending on the demand, he added.
Vaccinations at Walk-In centres continue on Friday, he said adding that by 10:40 am (local time) a total of 338 vaccinations were held at the Walk-In centres throughout the government-controlled areas. In Nicosia 73 were held, in Larnaca 84, in Limassol 53 and 56 in Paphos.
«Walk-In» centres operate at the Latsia and Linopetra Health Centres, at the General hospitals of Paphos and Limassol and at Larnaca Port.
Currently, only people who are registered in the General Health system GeSY can be vaccinated with the Pfizer jabs. The Walk-In centres operate Monday-Friday from 08:00-13:00.
