Inside, there were not many registrants for the vaccine. The photo sent by the reader of the portal “Delfi” shows a lot of empty tables without workers.
Coordinator of the Litexpo Vaccination Center Darius Ulickas, when asked about queues by the portal Delfi, said: “The registrars are actually working at full capacity, but we are not able to get vaccinated. Also, there is now a cold period.
The duration of vaccination has not changed since the summer, but since a lot of older people are now getting vaccinated, that process of getting undressed and getting dressed really takes a long time. “The queues are certainly not delayed, but the process itself is very long.”
However, the interviewee was pleased that the people waiting for the vaccine were not angry. They see the situation and understand why it happened.
D. Ulickas reminded that there are more vaccination centers in Vilnius, not only Litexpo. In total, there are already over 50 vaccination sites in the capital.
“If there is an opportunity to register elsewhere, it is better to do so. Of course, Litexpo is the most convenient place to get vaccinated, but the capacity is the same, ”said the interlocutor.
