According to local media reports, Greek Prime Minister Mizotakis went to the city of Marusi, 15 kilometers north of Athens, on February 13 to inspect the upcoming COVID-19 vaccination center called Prometheus.
According to the introduction, the Prometheus Vaccination Center is located in a famous exhibition center.
Due to the suspension of all exhibitions during the epidemic, the Greek government decided to use the facility to provide services for mass vaccination.
Starting from February 15, the vaccination center will first open 48 separate compartments, operating from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day. In the first stage, an appointment will be arranged every 15 minutes, and up to 2,400 doses of vaccines can be vaccinated every day.
With the use of all 96 compartments, up to 5,760 doses of vaccine will be available per day, greatly improving vaccination efficiency.
During a visit to the Prometheus Vaccination Center, Mizotakis said that Greece is currently one of the countries with the highest daily vaccination rates in Europe.
As of February 12, Greece had received more than half a million doses of vaccine and received more than 1 million appointments.
Prometheus Vaccination Center is one of four super-large vaccination centers planned to be operated by the Greek government.
The second super-large vaccination center is located at the International Exhibition Center of Thessaloniki, the largest city in northern Greece, and will also open on February 15.
The maximum daily dose of vaccine in the initial stage is 1,000 doses; when the whole compartment is open, the maximum daily dose can reach 6,480 doses of vaccine.
In addition, the Greek government will create two other super-large vaccination centers in Athens, and more small-scale vaccination outlets will be added.
Hadalías, deputy minister of the Greek Ministry of Civil Protection, said that once the vaccine supply is sufficient, the government will quickly take measures to increase the number of 396 vaccination outlets to serve the people.
