Åland Post became the local vaccination site
Åland Post was a perfect match for a vaccination site due to its central location and practical facilities. Particularly beneficial was the fact that Åland Post is a logistics centre with controlled environments for temperature-sensitive goods. During both transport and storage, the vaccine is stored at strictly controlled temperatures until it is ready for use.
Since May 2021, Åland Post’s main entrance, reception area and adjacent facilities are used for the public vaccinations in Åland Islands. At the main entrance, volunteers from the local Red Cross greet all visitors. A short walk down a corridor takes them to the mass vaccination site. After a short wait, they receive their vaccine shots and are shown to a waiting area for a 15-minute observation period, after which they can leave.
The vaccination site is open daily including weekends and will stay open until October.
During the times of the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone all must come together. In a small community, such as the Åland Islands, collaborations are crucial for maintaining the residents’ well-being.
This is a collaboration that impacts all our society and gives us hope for a normal life again.
