Tallinn provides vaccinations at home and opens a new testing and vaccination centre

From the 8th of November, the vaccination brigade starts working in Tallinn to provide home vaccinations against COVID-19. Furthermore, a new consultation, vaccination, and testing centre will be opened in Freedom Square (Vabaduse Väljak).

Home vaccinations are meant for people with moving disabilities, but other people can call them as well. During the home visit, the brigade will advise and vaccinate people and stay with them for 15 minutes after vaccination to monitor the patient's condition. 

Last week, Tallinn opened consultation and vaccination stations in 4 places all over the city, and until yesterday, 1875 doses of vaccine were given, 1386 of them were first doses. Because people have found their way to the vaccination stations, the city council decided to extend the service for another week, plus open another station in Lindakivi cultural centre in Lasnamäe on the 30th of October. 

The infections per 100K people reported last 7 days in Estonia are 828, in Tallinn 674. The highest rate is in Nõmme, where there are 966 infections per 100K people, right after that is Pirita with 755. In most parts of the city, the infection rate is below the medium in Estonia.
