If you want to get vaccinated against COVID-19, you can do so at multiple locations throughout the region. These locations change often and have specific opening times. The most recent list of locations (including opening times and dates) can be found here. These locations take walk-ins. This means that you do not need an appointment to receive your vaccination.
