Efforts to promote COVID-19 vaccination are intensifying

In the context of the actions of the Ministry of Health for strengthening the vaccination shield of the population, especially among the young age-groups, the contribution of private organizations and bodies, which include information regarding vaccination against COVID-19 in their various activities, is considered important.

Recognizing the importance of vaccination in the effort to create conditions of safety and protection against the virus, and in the framework of a series of actions to promote vaccination, in consultation with the organizers, the Ministry of Health will operate a walk-in vaccination center, within Epic Nicosia Street Fest, which will take place tomorrow, Thursday, September 16, on Stasikratous Street, in Lefkosia.

The vaccinations will be carried out by a mobile unit, staffed by a group of volunteer Dentists from the Dental Services of the Ministry of Health, under the guidance of the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary. People who will be vaccinated will be given the Pfizer vaccine. It is noted that persons wishing to be vaccinated must present proof of identification (identity card, passport, etc.), while in the case of minors, the Written Consent Document of Parents / Legal Guardians for Vaccination of Minors against COVID-19 must also be submitted, signed by both parents / guardians, unless legally (upon presentation of a relevant Court decision) this is not necessary. During their vaccination, children 12-17 years old must be accompanied by their parents / legal guardians (one or both of them) or another adult.

At the event venue, there will be an information point on vaccination.

The event is under the auspices of the Minister of Health and is co-organized by SPPMedia Ltd and the Municipality of Nicosia, with the support of Epic and Hellenic Bank. The Ministry of Health expresses its warm thanks to the organizers of the festival for their valuable contribution to the promotion of vaccinations.
