A mobile bus that vaccinates without registration. This is exactly what he will travel around Prague now
“The bus will be delivered at places that are frequented or at important events,” said the mayor of Prague Zdeněk Hřib (Pirates). The first bus stop will be the zoo. There, those interested in vaccinations will be able to attend the weekend at the turn of July and August from 09:00 to 17:00 without prior registration for the Nursing dose. In the coming days, the bus will build, for example, on the embankments at Hořejší and Rašín embankments, at the Olympic Festival in Stromovice or at the Prague Exhibition Grounds. Exactly the route and operating hours of the vaccination site can be found on the Prague website.
It will be possible to vaccinate up to 300 people a day on the bus, which was lent free of charge by the Capital Transport Company. The operation of the site will be provided by the medical team of the Metropolitan Vaccination Center in Vyšehrad from MEDICON. Those interested in safety will be able to choose between a single-dose safe company Johnson & Johnson and a two-dose Pfizer / BioNTech. To administer the second doses of the infirmary, it will again be possible to get on the bus or vaccinates will be able to order another vaccination center.
The campaign buses are already outside, so soon we will send a vaccination bus into the field. This is far more important at the moment. We took a look at it today and we will introduce it to you more on Thursday. Thank you, councilor @ milejo12 for supporting this project! ☺️ pic.twitter.com/xRhuAWtZa9

It will also be used with caution in children
According to Mayor Hřib, the bus will also have the task of spreading awareness about vaccinations among people. According to him, the bus will fulfill a contact campaign, where people will be able to ask health professionals on the spot for more information on vaccination against diseases, which can help refute the spread of misinformation in society.
At which station the bus will visit, the medical staff will also provide protection under the supervision of a pediatrician to children aged 12 to 15. According to the representatives of the municipality, this will be the first vaccination place where representatives of this age category will be able to vaccinate without registration. Foreigners will also be able to undergo vaccination here under the conditions of the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic. According to the mayor of the city, the ministry is now also seeking the possibility of vaccinating on a self-paying bus.
According to data from the Golemio data platforms, about 45 percent of the population of the Czech capital has so far been vaccinated with two doses of covid-19 safety. Thus, 583,440 people with permanent residence in Prague have completed complete vaccination of two-dose safety measures. The highest vaccination coverage is in Prague among seventies. They have been able to register for vaccination since March. There is also a high proportion of vaccinees among Prague residents in their 80s and older, to whom they could book vaccination dates from mid-January. More than half of people over the age of 40 are completely vaccinated in Prague, and less than a quarter are younger. A total of 4.61 million Czechs have received the second recommended dose so far, so 43.25 percent of the population have been vaccinated.
So far, health professionals have given approximately 1.8 million doses of covid-19 vaccine to people in Prague. In the capital, people can get vaccinated at vaccination centers or some GPs. In several places in the metropolis, those interested can get vaccinated without prior reservation. It is possible, for example, at Prague’s main railway station or in the Chodov and Smíchov department stores.
