Vaccination in Ermionida

It has been announced by the Mayor of Ermionida, Giannis Georgopoulos, that vaccination against the Covid-19 virus will start within Ermionida from Monday 15th February at the vaccination centre of the Kranidi Health Centre.  The Regional Health Centre in Kranidi is fully equipped and ready to commence the vaccination programme.  The National Public Health Organisation originally selected the hospitals in Nafplio and Argos to administer the vaccine within the whole Argolida region.  However, following appeals to the Prime Minister and the Minister of Health, the Regional Health Centres of Kranidi and Ligourio have now been authorised to administer the vaccine.  This will save many over 80's, particulary with mobility problems, from having to travel over 70kms, one way, to obtain their vaccinations.

The platform for all citizens aged 60-64 opened on 10th February, this age group will be the very first to receive the AstraZeneca vaccine, with vaccinations expected to start on 15th February.  The platform for coronavirus vaccinations for all citizens aged 75-79 will open on Friday 12th February, with vaccinations also to start on Monday 15th February.  Vaccinations in these age groups will be done in parallel with those citizens aged 80-84 years old.
