Vágar wants its own vaccination site
The two municipalities in Vágar have joined forces to set up a vaccination site on the island.
Vága municipality and Sørvágs municipality have sent a letter to the authorities requesting permission to open a vaccination centre.
“We want to do our bit to reach herd immunity, so that we can get our country back up and running again,” says Bjarni Prior, mayor of Vága municipality.
“All these people going into quarantine is starting to disrupt many of the island’s workplaces, and with the summer holidays for schools and daycare centres ending soon, we’ll be seeing problems there too.”
He adds that schools and sports halls on the islands would be perfectly suitable as vaccination sites.
“But ultimately, this would be decided by the health authorities. They have expressed interest in the idea, but we have yet to receive any confirmation.”
