As of Monday, October 18, vaccination at shopping malls will only be possible with a prior booking on manavakcina.lv or by phone 8989, except for seniors over 65. Lately, queues have been forming by vaccination points at shopping malls.
Unlike spring, it is currently more difficult for organizers of the vaccination process to attract staff because medics are exhausted and employed in other medical facilities.
"We are encouraging residents to treat each other with respect, including vaccination providers, who are currently working intensively. We are soldiers who perform a particular function in this battlefield. And we're doing it from the heart. Vaccination rates are climbing and approaching the capacity of the intensive period of spring," said Māris Rēvalds, head of medical establishment chain Veselības centrs 4.
