Another vaccination centre will be opened in Vilnius next week. It will be launched at the Litexpo exhibition centre.
According to the local government, in the largest hall in the centre, marked with number 5, there will be 50 vaccination booths, which will enable the vaccination of up to 15,000 people a day.
Currently, apart from vaccination points in clinics, there are also two larger vaccination points – in the municipality building and the informal education centre in Žirmūnai.
According to the council, when the Litexpo vaccination centre is opened, clinics will be able to focus more on revaccinations and vaccinations at home for people who have mobility problems.
