Mobile vaccination clinics opening up in Malta
That’s right. In the coming days, a mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinic will be set up and visiting several locations, announced the health minister Chris Fearne.
Fearne announced the official dates and locations, which you can check out below:
The clinics will be open from 9am to noon and will be set up around locations including Technopark in Mosta, near the Żejtun Parish Church, near the St Julian’s Police station and in front of Parliament in Valletta. The minister also announced six dates, alongside the locations, which will start next Monday and will span over the next fortnight.
The initiative is Malta’s latest attempt at encouraging the population to get vaccinated. As it stands, over 80% of the adult population is fully vaccinated against the virus and two-thirds of children aged 12-15 have been administered the first dose.
Do I have to get an appointment?
No, residents do not need to make an appointment. However, they must present their Identity Card or any form of identification documentation, such as a passport, along with proof of Maltese residency, when they arrive at the clinic. A water and electricity bill, job contract or rental agreement can all be used to prove Maltese residency.
What about children?
Kids under the age of 16 can also get the vaccine at the mobile clinic but they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who can provide consent and present proof of identification.
