Impfbus on tour
The “Impfbus on tour” is the mobile vaccination unit, the details/route of which are communicated online at www.impfen.lu.
For this mobile vaccination unit, vaccinations are done without appointment (identity card and CNS card required). The type of vaccination offered is the primary vaccination and the booster (additional dose).
As appointments are not taken in advance, one waits one turn; as a result, this can cause waiting times, especially in the event of a large crowd. For those who want to avoid waiting, they are advised to to make an appointment at the vaccination centre, with one's doctor or at a pharmacy.
The Victor Hugo vaccination centre will close its doors on 13 August from 13:00.
