The Grimaldi Forum will become vaccination headquarters from Monday, while a new online booking service is helping to speed up the rollout in Monaco.
People over the age of 65 and those with underlying health conditions are the first to have access to the new online booking service for Covid-19 vaccinations.
The government announced on Wednesday that it had launched the new digital service to speed up the vaccination rollout in the Principality.
People just need to visit the website www.covid19.mc to signal their intention to be vaccinated against Covid-19. They will then be contacted by phone to arrange an appointment.
It is still possible for people to make their appointments by phone by calling the Covid-19 Call Centre at 92 05 55 00, seven days a week from 8am to 8pm.
Meanwhile, the vaccination programme will shift from the Espace Léo Ferré to the Grimaldi Forum from Monday 25th January for operational purposes.
A spokesperson for the Grimaldi Forum has confirmed to Monaco Life that the Principality’s largest culture and congress centre will be repurposed for the important health initiative.
From that date, the Espace Léo Ferré will once again be entirely dedicated to PCR screening for the Covid virus.

The French medicines safety agency has been documenting the side effects of the Covid vaccinations since the start of the campaign rollout and have released results of their first analysis.
The European Union is likely to approve a single dose vaccine from Johnson & Johnson in March, after the USA cleared it for emergency use last weekend.
Saliva tests are currently being trialled at the National Screening Centre and the government is hoping as many people as possible will take the test to help determine its effectiveness.
Young job seekers in Monaco have been assured that there are plenty of opportunities to be had in the Principality despite the health crisis.
