Today, the first of three new vaccination centres in Brussels' main train stations and the SNCB museum Train World open their doors to anyone who has not yet been vaccinated, without needing an appointment.

The centres will be set up in the busy Brussels-Midi and Brussels-Central stations and will be accessible to anyone - whether travellers or just people passing through the stations - who still wants a vaccine.

"By facilitating the vaccination of its personnel and making the Brussels-Midi and Brussels-Central stations as well as the Train World museum in Schaerbeek available for the installation of vaccination centres, SNCB wants to contribute to the social effort to increase the percentage of vaccinated people among the population," Sophie Dutordoir, SNCB's CEO, said in a press release.

More information about the vaccination options will also be displayed on billboards and screens in stations and trains.
