A COVID vaccination bus will visit different areas in Prague, starting on Saturday in Troja district. A single-dose or two-dose vaccine will be administered according to the client’s wishes.
Those interested in vaccinations can arrive without prior registration from 9:00 to 17:00. In the coming days, the bus will also visit the embankments at Hořejší and Rašín embankments, the Olympic Festival in Stromovka, and the Prague Exhibition Grounds.

“It will be possible to vaccinate up to 300 people a day. The bus was lent free of charge by the Capital Transport Company. The bus will be dispensing the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, which only requires one shot to be fully vaccinated, and the two-dose Pfizer/BioNTech. To receive the second dose, it will be possible to get on the bus again or to be vaccinated at another vaccination center,” said Mayor Zdeněk Hřib (Pirates).
Foreigners will also be able to undergo vaccination under the conditions set by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic. According to the mayor, the city is now seeking the opportunity to vaccinate on the bus the self-payers, as well.
