This is how the county and the regional health agency announced, Thursday, March 3, the gradual closure of the 12 vaccination centers in Landes. The infection rate remains high, but the Covid pandemic represents time in the Landes department. The infection rate remains high, at 985 infections per 100,000 population. But the reason is simple: the department was affected a month later by the Omicron variant. Thus, the infection rate is in the process of declining, but with a delay of one month in the rest of France.
At Landis Hospitals, the number of patients hospitalized with Covid has halved in one week. At the same time, the number of gatherings in nursing homes has been halved.
Gradual closure of vaccination centers
86% of Landis’ residents have already received two doses of the vaccine. 65% received all three doses. Before Christmas, vaccination centers in Landes carried out 20,000 injections a week, compared to just 1,200 at present.
