The Romanian government has announced that it wants to make vaccination more accessible by opening new centers across the country.
Thus, Prime Minister Florin Cîțu announced today the arrangement for new vaccination centers, which will be available in shopping centers, drive-through centers or even within office buildings, and some of them could be opened non-stop.
The first vaccination center where Romanians will be able to get vaccinated directly from the car has already been announced. It will be located in the parking lot of a shopping center in the city of Deva and will be opened, most likely, starting with April 24.
Several such drive-through centers were also announced by Valeriu Gheorghiță, the coordinator of the vaccination campaign in Romania. These will be located in Bucharest and other large cities. Mr. Gheorghiță announced that these centers should be put into use by the end of April, and the vaccination will be done with the Pfizer vaccine.
Each drive-through center will have four mobile vaccination teams. This means that a total of 400 people can be immunized in one day. Only Pfizer serum will be distributed in these centers and no scheduling will be required, as they will function on a first come, first served basis.
Also, the first non-stop vaccination center against Covid-19 was recently opened in Timișoara. The center was designed with four flows per day and per night, so that the vaccination capacity in 24 hours is of approximately 480 people. Here, immunization is done only with the Pfizer vaccine.
