Ecolab has partnered with O2 Universum, a part of the O2 Arena complex in Prague, to set up the Czech Republic’s largest vaccination centre.

The conference centre is preparing itself to vaccinate up to 7,000 people per day. The O2 Universum was repurposed from a concerts and sports hall into a vaccination centre over the span of several weeks, with 24 stations set up across 140,000sq ft.

Each station is equipped with Ecolab solutions, including 24 Mobillette Healthguards, wipes, alcohol-based hand rub and spray surface disinfectant. After training, each station and dedicated team can manage the flow of patients and effectively disinfect the workspace after a vaccination. The whole centre is equipped with more than 140 Nexa hand disinfection dispensers.

Jan Bohacek, vice president, institutional, Central and Eastern Europe and Russia at Ecolab, said: “We are honoured to support the government and Prague Military Hospital in this bold and important effort to turn an entertainment venue into a vaccination location for thousands of people every day.

“Our teams have worked hand-in-hand with arena and hospital management to help train staff on cleaning and disinfection practices and roll out these state-of-the-art vaccination stations to safely manage the large flow of patients.”
