Everyone who wants a Covid-19 jab can line up this weekend

In seven Latvian cities this weekend there will be an opportunity to get a vaccine for everyone who wishes, on a first come first serve basis, the Health Ministry said April 15.

This weekend, seven cities in Latvia – Riga, Daugavpils, Liepāja, Rēzekne, Jelgava, Jūrmala and Cēsis – will have the opportunity to give jabs against Covid-19 to every resident of Latvia who wants it. Vaccination will be carried out with the vaccines of the manufacturer AstraZeneca, and residents will be able to receive the vaccine when they arrive at large-scale vaccination centers in these cities.

Citizens who belong to a priority group already eligible will be invited to a special line for them, no additional evidence of belonging to a priority group will be required. The rest will be directed along the other line.

Vaccination in each of the cities will have a predetermined amount of vaccines. “At the moment the amount of vaccines has been used, the vaccination center will end its activity on a given day,” said VM. Therefore there is no guarantee that enough vaccine shots will be available if demand proves to be very high, as seems a distinct possibility.

All those who want it will be able to get vaccinated at this time and places:

April 16: 

  • Rīga (ATTA centrs - Krasta iela 60);
  • Jelgava (Zemgales Olimpiskais centrs - Kronvalda 24),
  • Jūrmala (Jūrmalas sporta skola - Nometņu iela 2)

April 18:

Vaccination in these cities will take place between 9:00 and 17:00, except in the Ķīpsala hall in Riga and GORS in Rēzekne from 9:00 to 19:00.

Vaccination will take place without prior registration and any resident who arrives will be vaccinated as long as vaccines are available. Residents should only take a passport or ID with them.

A batch ranging from 390 to 2,500 vaccines is expected to be used in each center, and the amount of vaccines depends on the size of the center. Residents invited to come to vaccination gradually, throughout the day and respect epidemiological safety.

In order to ensure a successful vaccination process throughout the next week, the population is invited to come only if an appointment in another vaccination office is not already scheduled for the next week.
