3 min readJun 3, 2021

It is not the Geneva International Motor Show that attracts visitors this year, but the CoV-2. Palexpo will become the locomotive of the Geneva vaccination campaign and is the largest vaccination center in Switzerland. An ambitious plan to have all volunteers in Geneva vaccinated by the end of June.

The project is estimated to cost 2 million francs and is the result of an unprecedented partnership between WAGGGS (the association of doctors in the municipality), PharmaGeneve (the association of pharmacy owners in the municipality) and M3 Group. The role of the pharmacist on site is the same as that of the doctor. Most of the pharmacists have received vaccine training from the HUG and the State. Rémi Lafaix, President of PharmaGenève, said: “Since the beginning of the vaccination campaign, pharmacists are very much in demand. “It is ordered to vaccinate everyone by this summer.

We hope that by mid-July, everyone in the canton of Geneva will have access to the vaccine, but we cannot promise this since we are dependent on these deliveries. We cannot promise this because we are dependent on these deliveries”, says Angèle Brassoud, Head of the two testing centers of the m3 Sani Trade group. Keep in mind that the vaccine is currently only available for those 16 years and older and those 18 years and older. We are currently receiving 80,000 doses per month, and we expect to reach 150,000 doses in May and June. So the state hopes to reach a rate of 8,000 to 9,000 vaccinations per day. “In addition, in order to accelerate the vaccination rate, it is now possible to make appointments where there are vacancies, regardless of the vaccination center chosen. the vaccination platform. Pre-testing people, and those who can not check all vaccination centers at the time of registration, as these centers have not opened a pragmatic option more quickly, but this will not prevent people who wish to change the date or time of appointments , to contact their designated centers or if it is to change the place of vaccination, to contact the general information line COVID-19 by email or by phone T. 0800 909 400 (free call, 7 days a week, 8am-7pm).
