Starting April 24, Disneyland Paris will provide the convention center at Disney’s Newport Bay Club to serve as one of the mass vaccination centers in the country for local authorities to distribute COVID-19 vaccines to the local community.
The site will be open weekends from 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. and appointments can be booked online.
The vaccination center will be separate from the hotel and will be equipped and managed by the Seine-et-Marne fire department (SDIS), which will oversee the logistics and operate the ‘vaccinodrome’ autonomously, under the authority of the prefecture and the French health authorities (ARS).
The SDIS aims to deliver 1,000 vaccinations every Saturday and Sunday according to prevailing government guidelines. Disneyland Paris will provide the location necessary to carry out the operation.
This is part of the country’s wider efforts in the national vaccination campaign and is a continuation of Disneyland Paris’ efforts to support the local community this past year.
“Disneyland Paris is proud to help support the authorities by allowing the Seine-et-Marne Prefecture to use the Disney’s Newport Bay Club convention center to administer vaccine,” said Eric Marion, vice president of Operations.
