Coronavirus: new Paphos walk-in vaccination clinic gains traction

Hackers shut down system for booking COVID-19 shots in Italy's Lazio region

A total of 100 citizens got a vaccine at the new Paphos walk-in vaccine clinic, it was announced on Sunday.

Housed at the former district officer’s home, walk-in vaccinations are continuing on a daily basis. It was inaugurated on Saturday and was quick to gain traction among residents.

The opening was carried out by Health Minister Michalis Hadjipantelas, permanent secretary of the health ministry Christina Yiannaki, paphos mayor and bishop of Paphos.

For now, only the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine will be available for Gesy members. The walk-in clinic will only be possible for people who have not been vaccinated and not for people going for a second dose.

According to the health ministry, providing walk-ins for people who are not in Gesy will come at a later stage.

So far, 6,000 people have been vaccinated at walk-in centres across the country, the health ministry said.
