Disneyland Paris to host mass vaccination site
The goal is to give shots to at least 1,000 people a day
Disneyland Paris will from Saturday host a mass Covid vaccination site at its convention centre as France seeks to speed up its inoculation drive, officials said yesterday.
The amusement park east of the capital has been closed since October 30, when nonessential businesses were ordered to close amid a surge in infections, putting its 17,000 employees out of work. It had originally planned to readmit visitors on April 2, but worsening conditions forced it to postpone.
The vaccination site will be housed outside the amusement park proper at its Newport Bay Club, a convention centre near its hotel complex.
It will be run by local authorities and the regional ARS health service, and will be open weekends only, whereas other French vaccination sites often close on Sunday.
The goal is to give shots to at least 1,000 people a day, as France aims to get at least one jab to 20 million people by midMay.
