I had a scan via GESY at the place on dual carriageway, opposite a sports shop. Coming up to hospital roundabout, turn left toward Polis Road and its the big building on left. My doctor sent me there.
It's called Vardas or Vorkas Clinic and exactly where Jimgym has described

Re: Account of having the Covid vaccination at Paphos Hospital

Any reports of allergic reactions to the vaccine? What can we expect should they happen?

Re: COVID Test on Arrival

Who knows if Les is resident in Cyprus. Many contributors to PL are not resident in Cyprus and might not be immigrants at all. Just saying. Having said that, I think he is a Cypriot resident.

They are reporting a 70% protection 2 weeks after the first injection but no-0ne is telling us what protection level is expected after the 2nd injection.

I would have said Lincoln's visits are adequately covered by the above regulations. Failing that, a trip by car to the shops as Trev suggests.
Where?

It would be interesting to know if anyone in CYPRUS has had a letter from the bank, stating that they were closing the accounts, due to Brexit.
I have received such a letter from Cynergy but it took 3 weeks to get here. I know of one other person who has received the same letter.

Re: Paphos establishment owner fined €8,000 for breach of covid measures

There is no need for us to know the name of the establishment. We are all masters of our own destiny, so if upon entering an establishment you find it is not abiding by the rules then simply turn around and walk out.

Re: Paphos establishment owner fined €8,000 for breach of covid measures

Seems a bit hefty just for not having distance markings and instructions on how to wear masks. OK if the police found people not wearing masks or not adhering to social distancing but that is not what the report says

Re: Coronavirus: health minister does not rule out total lockdown (Update 2)

Lockdowns will not solve the problem . we have had a total lockdown, we have had region lockdown and we have had all the restrictions possible thrown at us and the figures are still rising. All lockdowns do is to slow the issue down but once it is relaxed we are back to square one. The only way to ...

Re: Coronavirus: Dramatic appeals to follow protocols amid lockdown fears

Dominic, My posting was based upon the following report in last Thursday's Cyprus Mail which seems to contradict you. However I accept that more recent reportings may not be based upon this. << Two more people have died of Covid-19, raising the death toll to 54, while the health ministry reported 34...

Re: Coronavirus: Dramatic appeals to follow protocols amid lockdown fears

Of the 416, over 200 were originally identified via the Rapid Testing scheme. It's worth pointing this out as some people were saying that that was pointless. Clearly it wasn't. The reason for the increase in cases seems is partly because they are doing more tests. However, that won't affect the de...

Re: More COVID measures - partial lockdown with no limits on movement within province.

Let me get this straight. (Looking for confirmation or otherwise) If you are exempt then you need to have a Covid Test for each crossing of the district border. (I know there are other requirements etc.) If you are not exempt but are only crossing the border for a one-off visit to a hospital or clin...

Re: More COVID measures - partial lockdown with no limits on movement within province.

Sounds like residents of Pissouri cannot come to Paphos to do their shopping as they are in Limassos District.
