The Municipal Polyclinic in Prague offers single-dose vaccination and appointment reservations
In the Prague Municipal Polyclinic in Spálená Street, people will be able to get vaccinated with the Janssen single-dose vaccine from November. A two-dose vaccine from BioNTech and Pfizer will also be available for them.
Those interested will be able to book the date of vaccination, thus avoiding waiting in lines. Vít Hofman, a spokesman for the municipality, informed about the news in the operation of the vaccination center of the established capital today.
For the first time, paramedics will administer the Janssen disposable vaccine at the vaccination site in Spálená Street on the first day of November from 07:30 to 15:20. In addition to Janssen vaccines, two-dose vaccines from BioNTec and Pfizer will be available in the coming days. The reservation of the vaccination date is possible through the reservation system or by telephone on the line 222 924 260.
In the time needed after vaccination, people should be able to be comfortably vaccinated with a single-dose main vaccine, believes the mayor Zdeněk Hřib (Pirates). “All-day waiting in queues inside a shopping center or at a railway station, as offered by the government, is indecent and goes against the meaning of security measures,” said Hřib.
In the Czech Republic, interest in vaccination is currently increasing again. On Tuesday, medics administered 32,414 doses, the most since August 27. Most of it was the third booster dose.
A booster dose of the vaccine is now given by healthcare professionals in nursing homes. Prague social residential facilities can use the services of a mobile vaccination team, which was established in cooperation with the Prague City Hall with the Czech Red Cross and the Municipal Polyclinic in Prague. The mobile vaccination team has been active again since the beginning of October, according to Milena Johnová (Prague Sobě), Prague councilor for social policy and healthcare. According to the councilors, the medics of the mobile vaccination team have so far given the vaccine to about 200 applicants from among clients and employees of nursing homes.
According to a spokesman for the municipality, Prague is also continuing its campaign to vaccinate against covid-19. It is especially targeted at young Praguers. According to data on the golemio.cz data platform, less than 60 percent of Praguers under the age of 39 are vaccinated against covid-19. Young people are thus the least vaccinated age group of people in the metropolis. (CTK)
