Coronavirus: Mobile jab centre for wine area villages


A mobile vaccination unit will be in Pachna on Saturday to make it easier for residents of the wider, wine villages area to get inoculated.

According to the health ministry, its Limassol mobile vaccination unit will be at the Pachna community’s health centre between 8am and 1pm on Saturday.

“Officials of the health ministry will be at the health centre to inform people about the benefits of vaccination, but also to answer questions and concerns regarding the vaccination,” it said.

Health Minister Michalis Hadjipantelas will visit the health centre along with the commissioner for the development of mountain communities, Costas Hambiaouris, and the ministry’s permanent secretary, Christina Yiannaki.

The unit will be offering vaccinations to people who want to have their first, second or booster jab.

Regarding the booster jab, this applies for people aged 30 and over who have received their second dose, at least six months ago.

People who have been vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine will be administered as booster jab one of the mRNA technology vaccines (Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna).

Anyone interested in getting vaccinated need to present an ID, passport, or alien registration certificate and their vaccination cards if they are getting the second of third doses.
