According to Creta24, the Parish of Agios Nikolaos Archanes, health workers and the municipality of Acharnes Asterousia will carry out vaccinations against the COVID-19 in the church.

Vaccinations will be given with the Johnson & Johnson monosodium vaccine on Monday, September 6 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
