Three vaccination centers are opening in the regions this week: in Talsi, Aizkraukle and Salaspils. All existing vaccination centers are still open (Ķīpsala, Atta Center and Olympic Center in Rīga, as well as centers in Daugavpils, Jelgava, Madona, Alūksne, Tukums, and Liepāja).
In Rīga, a vaccination center opens on the second floor of the central bus station (Autoosta).
To increase vaccination coverage among seniors, family doctors have been tasked with calling all unvaccinated seniors in their practices and offering vaccination. Health Minister Daniels Pavļuts said on Twitter that he had also personally called twelve seniors, of whom two did not agree to vaccinate, four did, and six had already managed to do it before his call.
By doing so, Pavļuts urged residents to encourage seniors they know to go and get vaccinated.
6 (12) pret 2! Vakar zvanīju vēl nevakcinētiem senioriem un 6 bija ar mieru vakcinēties, 6 bija tikko vakcinējušies! 2 kundzes neizdevās pierunāt. Tikai viens iedrošinošs zvans var izdarīt tik daudz - glābt kādam veselību un pat dzīvību. #PiezvaniSenioramhttps://t.co/AzR1o97FMr pic.twitter.com/KsGz701Z7Z— Daniels Pavluts (@pavluts) October 25, 2021
