Only two major Covid-19 testing and vaccination centres will remain open in the Brussels-Capital Region in June, as the centre in Albert in the municipality of Forest will close its doors on Wednesday, the Joint Community Commission (Cocom) announced on Tuesday.

The number of tests and vaccinations continues to decrease, which is why the Brussels health services are adapting their offer to the epidemiological situation by only keeping two centres open. The one in Forest, located near the Albert tram stop, will close on 1 June.

"The testing and vaccination capacity remains sufficient and can be expanded rapidly depending on to the needs and the epidemiological situation," the organisation said in a press release.

Those who still want to be vaccinated against Covid-19 can go to the centres in Molenbeek and Pacheco, which will remain open for the time being. Children aged between 5 and 11 can also be vaccinated there, but an appointment is required.

In addition to the two main centres, some 30 local vaccination points also remain open. On top of that, it is also possible to get vaccinated at a GP's office, in a medical centre or in a pharmacy. For the latter, appointments must be made via the Doctena platform or via Bru-Vax.

Home vaccination also remains an option for those unable to get around for physical and/or psychological reasons. In that case, however, the GP must first submit an application via the Doctena platform.

An interactive map with all testing and vaccination locations in the Brussels-Capital Region, including information about whether an appointment is needed and which vaccine is administered, is available via
