The vaccination centre operating at the Cyprus State Fair grounds in Nicosia, is carrying out 1,400 vaccinations a day, health official, Maria Roka, said on Wednesday, adding that 30-35 healthcare workers were currently deployed there.

Roka noted that many people were interested in getting the jab and numbers had picked up following the pause in using the AstraZeneca shot with levels returning to normal, she said.

The vaccination centre is open from 8am to 2.30pm daily. Roka called on people to arrange their appointments, adding that the population must be vaccinated as soon as possible.
