As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, at the Andrija Stampar School of Public Health in Zagreb, from Monday, June the 28th to Wednesday, June the 30th, 2021, people will be able to come and be vaccinated against COVID-19 without giving any special notice, the Croatian Institute of Public Health announced.

Citizens of Zagreb, but also people from other parts of Croatia, will be able to be vaccinated against COVID-19 next week without a special invitation or announcement as the new Zagreb vaccination programme gets going.

In addition to the three locations in Zagreb where vaccination will be carried out by the aforementioned Institute, people will be able to receive their first dose of the vaccine from Monday at Rockefellerova ulica 4, organised by the Croatian Institute of Public Health and the Faculty of Medicine, University of Zagreb, from 09:00 to 15:00.

People aged 65 and over and people with chronic diseases will be vaccinated first from 09:00 to 11:00, and then from 11:00 to 13:00 people aged 40 and over can come, from 13:00 to 15:00, those under 40 years of age can come and be vaccinated. The same schedule applies to Tuesday, June the 29th, 2021, while the same Zagreb vaccination programme is scheduled for Wednesday before and after noon.

Turning up to be vaccinated doesn’t require any announcements, but the number of people who can be vaccinated in one term is limited to 800 to a maximum of one thousand. The vaccination organiser will distribute vaccination coupons to people that day according to their time of arrival, depending on the level of interest.

”We want to open to citizens as many opportunities up as possible for people to come and get vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to protect ourselves from the infection with the highest possible vaccination rate, but also to prevent its further spread,” stated Krunoslav Capak, the director of the Croatian Institute of Public Health.

It is necessary to have an identity card and a health insurance card with you upon arrival, because only persons who have HZZO insurance are currently being vaccinated in this way. People are also being asked to wear a mask and to dress lightly, bring water and suitable sun protection with them. People should adjust their arrival to the stated schedule in order to wait less and be vaccinated as soon as possible.

”I believe that we will be able to vaccinate all those citizens who want the vaccine in the planned time, so we’d like to ask them for cooperation and patience,” Capal said.

Vaccination with the first dose will be done solely with Pfizer.
