In the town of Bezdonys in the Vilnius region, a mobile point is being built where residents will be tested for COVID-19, as well as vaccinated.
According to epidemiologists, one of the recently detected cases of the Brazilian mutation of the coronavirus in Lithuania may be related to this town, so on Friday and Saturday from 10 to 18 at the Juliusz Słowacki’s Junior High School (Statybininkų g. 4), a mobile point will operate.
Residents are invited to test for COVID-19 by PCR without registration and to vaccinate themselves with the Janssen vaccine.
The Ministry of Justice reminds that people in financial difficulties continue to be able to defer payment for utility services.
During the first quarantine, more than 25,000 residents took advantage of this opportunity.
People who wish to defer payment for utility services should provide the companies providing the services with documents proving the loss or reduction of revenues.
Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis confirmed that in May diplomats from European Union (EU) countries working in Belarus were vaccinated against the coronavirus in Lithuania.
According to him, the decision to help diplomats of the union’s countries in Belarus was made because in this country they do not have the possibility to obtain vaccines registered in the EU
“Diplomats working in Minsk do not have access to vaccines registered in the EU. They are not available in Belarus,” said G. Landsbergis in a comment sent to the BNS.
“We are the closest to Minsk, so it is natural that we were a country that extended a helping hand to the diplomats staying there – their work in this country is not only responsible, but very often dangerous,” he added.
