The Regional Ministry of Health and Consumer Affairs has installed the COVID-19 vaccination bus in the car park of the Eroski supermarket in Sa Pobla (Ronda Nord s/n) where it will be operational from today, Tuesday, until 29 January. People who have not yet been vaccinated will be able to receive the first dose without making an appointment.
The Health Ministry’s objective is to increase the vaccination rate among the population and to make it easier for citizens to receive the vaccine. This was explained by the Regional Minister of Health and Consumer Affairs, Patricia Gómez, and the Director of the Health Service, Eugenia Carandell, who visited the vacubús with the Mayor of Sa Pobla, Llorenç Gelabert.
The bus will be staffed by a nurse and an auxiliary nursing care technician from Mallorca Primary Care and a service assistant from GSAIB, who will vaccinate between 9.30 am and 6.30 pm.
A total of 4,772 vaccinations against COVID-19 have already been administered on the vacubús since it began operating. The bus has already been installed in Palma’s Intermodal Station, in Inca during Dijous Bo, in the FAN Mallorca shopping centre on two occasions, in the Mercadona in Son Caliu, in Palma’s Plaza de España during the Christmas holidays, and in the car park of the Eroski supermarket in Manacor.
