Vaccination centers in Prague: There are queues at Chodov and at the main railway station
From Monday, the test will often not be enough, but it will require confirmation of covid in the last six months or vaccinations. “I wouldn’t let it go voluntarily, would I? the system simply forced me. If I want to live at least a little normally from Monday, I have no choice, “said one of those waiting in Chodov. He came for the first dose of vaccine.
In Chodov, he is vaccinated with a two-dose Pfizer vaccine, those interested can be from the age of 16. The man who accompanied his son to vaccinate took advantage of this. “I already have the third dose of the vaccine, I was practically among the first to be vaccinated. We were forced to vaccinate my son, for example because of school, but also other things and activities, “he said.
Vaccines in Chodov are administered by nurses from the Institute of Clinical and Experimental Medicine (IKEM). He wrote on his Twitter account that 1,367 people were vaccinated at this vaccination center in one day on Friday. “It simply came to our notice then. We administered a total of 92,400 doses of the vaccine, “he said. According to the findings of the ČTK newsletter, younger people, who often came for the first dose of the vaccine, predominated in the queue in Chodov on Saturday.
In the lobby of the main paramedic station apply a single dose Janssen from Johnson & Johnson. The vaccination site is operated by the Bulovka University Hospital. It was the opportunity to get vaccinated with only one disposable vaccine that attracted Mrs. Petra. “The advantage is that I don’t have to deal with the second dose of the vaccine and I will do what the state demands of me,” she said.
However, the resigned Minister of Health Adam Vojtěch (for YES) pointed out this week that the ministry had requested the opinion of the State Institute for Drug Control on the Janssen single-dose vaccine. Experts are discussing shorter protection after a single-dose vaccine; last week, immunologist Zdeněk Hel mentioned it on Twitter. Recommended revaccination after two months. This information was new to Ms. Petra, but did not discourage her from applying Janssen. “Who knows what they will approve again, the new government will come and see it differently,” she said. Many foreigners were also waiting for the vaccine at the main station.
According to the Ministry of Health, the most confirmed cases of coronavirus in the Czech Republic came during the epidemic on Friday. Laboratories detected 22,936 infected, about 8,700 more than a week ago.

It will continue testing in schools and unvaccinated employees in companies will also be tested on a regular basis.
