Starting Wednesday, 18 August, vaccination site next to the Palace of Culture and Science (PKiN) will be operating Monday-Sunday between 8 am and 8 pm. As part of its #Warszawaszczepi vaccination campaign, the City opened 77 COVID-19 vaccination sites.
The site next to PKiN is located next to the metro Centrum exit. Until now, vaccinations there were only given on weekends, but to meet the needs and the demand from our residents, we decided that the site will be open seven days a week, from 8 am to 8 pm.
Warsaw’s residents know how important COVID-19 vaccination is. So far, 5,000 people got vaccinated on weekends at municipal vaccination sites. Vaccination statistics show that in Warsaw more than 1,150,000, or 64.5%, are fully vaccinated. Thank you! Taking the COVID-19 vaccine is not only about being responsible for yourself, but also for your loved ones and all the people living in Warsaw," emphasises Rafał Trzaskowski, Mayor of Warsaw.
The vaccination site next to the Palace of Culture and Science uses single-dose Johnson&Johnson and Pfizer vaccines. There is a referring physician available on site, so also children at the age of 12 or older can get vaccinated (Pfizer). In addition, at the site, you can test yourself for coronavirus.
The vaccination site available in the very centre of the City is good news for everyone who wants to get vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 without any additional formalities, and hasn't gotten down to doing it yet," says Renata Kaznowska, Deputy Mayor of Warsaw. We can see that both our residents and people visiting Warsaw are happy to get vaccinated in their free time. Last weekend (13-14 August), the vaccination site at Hoover Square vaccinated 312 people, and that next to PKiN 364 people, adds Deputy President Kaznowska.
