Costa's Savona Cruise Terminal turned into Covid vaccination site

   February 15, 2021 ,   Cruise Industry

Costa Cruises' passenger terminal Palacrociere (in Port Savona Italy) now serves as a Coronavirus/COVID vaccination site for elderly people (aged 80+).

The company decided to open the terminal to fight against the virus as part of Italy's "Silver Vaccine Day" campaign. After an agreement between Costa and ASL 2 Savona, now vaccinations are carried out in Palacrocier Terminal 2, which has daily capacity to vaccinate ~600 senior citizens. The vaccination centre is on the ground floor in an area of ~1500 m2 (16146 ft2).

Costa's Savona cruise terminal will be used for the next stages of the campaign, which involve other age groups, becoming one of the major vaccination points activated by Savona's health authorities. The authorities developed a specific protocol to ensure the vaccination would take place in a safe environment, and they would be able to count on the cruise line's health protocols provided by the company for its guests and crew members.

The vaccination campaign at the terminal will not impact the Costa cruise activities and scheduled sailings which are scheduled to resume in March 2021 with the return to service of flagship Costa Smeralda. The cruise ship terminal will be used as a vaccination site between Tuesday and Friday, but never in the presence of vessels in port.
