After collecting the vaccines in question, the firefighters must mix them with physiological saline. The act is done with extreme precision.
In one afternoon, 172 people will come to have the vaccine injected at the Vailhauquès gymnasium. Between 20 and 30 firefighters are available to welcome them. Many are volunteers, such as an intensive care nurse or a retired doctor. All firefighters are trained to vaccinate patients. In addition, the center should still increase in size to accommodate a thousand people per day.
