A large vaccination center will open its doors from Saturday at Disneyland Paris, the Seine-et-Marne prefecture announced on Wednesday.

The vaccinodrome will be installed "within the convention center of Disney's Newport Bay Club at Disneyland Paris", usually used for professional events.

The chosen location is located near the hotels, outside the amusement park itself.

No thematic activities linked to the park are planned.

After ceasing its activity between March 13 and July 15, 2020, Disneyland Paris, which employs 17,000 people, has been shut down again since October 30 because of health restrictions.

The center "will vaccinate at least 1,000 people per day", but will have the particularity of being open only on weekends, thanks to the mobilization of about sixty doctors, nurses, firefighters and reception staff, according to the organizers. .

Appointments will only be made online, they said.

Acceleration of vaccination

During a meeting at the Elysee Palace on Tuesday, Emmanuel Macron welcomed the fact that vaccination "is accelerating", with nearly 13 million people having received at least a first dose.

The Covid-19 epidemic seems to be on a downward slope in France, but the strain on the health system remains strong, with 31,086 hospitalized patients, including almost 6,000 in intensive care, according to the latest figures.
