The Brussels-Capital Region has announced August dates and locations for visits of the Vacci-Bus, a bus that travels to different places within the City of Brussels in order to vaccinate people against Covid-19.

The vaccinations are free and no appointment is required. People are reminded to bring their identity card.

The Vacci-Bus will be visiting the following locations in August:

Zuidfoor/Foire du Midi
On Monday 9 and 16 August and Wednesday 11 and 18 August, from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM.
Johnson & Johnson vaccine (1 single dose required)

Muntplein/Place de la Monnaie
From Monday 2 to Saturday 7 August 2021 from 11 am to 6 pm.
Johnson & Johnson vaccine (1 single dose required)

Anneessensplein/Place Anneessens

Place Emile Bockstael (opposite the Brico shop)
On Saturday August 7 (Pfizer) and Saturday August 14 (Johnson & Johnson), from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

People who receive a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine from the Vacci-Bus will need to get their second dose in a vaccination centre.

The Vacci-Bus began as a pilot project aimed at increasing the vaccination rate in the Belgian capital, which has lagged behind the rest of the country.
