At the end of the first day of vaccination in a number of Brussels stores, a total of 123 people received the Corona vaccine from Johnson & Johnson. Inge Nevin, head of the Brussels Health Inspectorate, reported this Monday evening.
55 people received a corona vaccine at the Carrefour hypermarket in Evere, 35 people at Carrefour in Orgem and 33 others at work in Molenbeek-Saint-Jean.
“We are satisfied,” said Nevin. “Every beginning is always a little difficult: people have doubts and want to think about whether they will come back the next day.”
At the request of Comeos, the union of trade and services, stores are doing their part to boost vaccination coverage in the capital.
Vaccination points have been set up at Carrefour in Evere and Odergheim from Monday to Friday. Shots are taken Monday through Thursday at Action in Molenbeek. From Wednesday to Friday there will also be vaccinations at the Primark store in Ixelles and on Friday and Saturday customers can get their dose of the vaccine at Ikea in Anderlecht.
