As part of the nationwide COVID-19 vaccination week (Impfwoch), Luxembourg's Ministry of Health is organising an information day (IMPF'O'DAY) this Saturday 11 December 2021 at the Athénée de Luxembourg in Luxembourg-Hollerich.
IMPF'O'DAY consists of two conference-debates, taking place in person and remotely (online), which will bring together various health experts to debate the topic of vaccination against COVID-19 and answer questions from the public.
Participation in these conferences is free of charge.
Luxembourg's Minister of Health, Paulette Lenert, will open both conferences.
