No appointment: Zurich to launch Covid-19 vaccination bus

Cantonal officials in Zurich are set to launch a vaccination bus which will travel through various municipalities offering no appointment vaccinations.


The bus will be launched after successful campaigns in neighbouring Schwyz and Schaffhausen. 

No appointments or registration will be required for the vaccinations. 

While the vaccinations will be open to everyone, they will be targeted at people who find the registration process to be difficult, complicated or laborious. 

Organisers are currently working with authorities in the various Zurich municipalities to determine where the bus will stop and at what times.

The bus will begin touring after the summer holidays, with specific dates and venues not yet determined. 


Jörg Kündig, the president of the community presidents' association, told SRF's “Regionaljournal Zürich-Schaffhausen” on Wednesday morning that the final touches were being made to the bus campaign.
