“It’s a page that turns“, recognizes the doctor of the SAMU in charge of the center this Tuesday noon. The vaccinodrome of the island of Ramier in Toulouse will close its doors this Saturday evening. It had been set up in March 2021.
Originally in March, the milk reception center in 2 rooms, on the 7th and 8th. “There were nocturnes, and we did up to 13,000 bites on important days here», Remembers Hugo Ricci, student referent, in charge of coordination and recruitment.
The doctoral student in health law does not hide his satisfaction at having achieved nearly 650,000 injections in 8 months here, either “the population of Toulouse intramural“.
While the Haute-Garonne now counts 82% of people fully vaccinated, the closure of the vaccinodrome seems to come at the right time according to Hugo Ricci.
At the moment we are vaccinating between 500 and 600 people per day, with an appointment and sometimes without, so it seems to us the right time to close the structure: we are no longer in mass vaccination, and we are leaving room for a whole panel of liberal professions who will take over for the last vaccinations to be done, knowing that the volume is much smaller, it will be much easier to collect.
If you want to get vaccinated after the center has closed, you can still make an appointment with a doctor via the doctolib platform.
