The medical guard opens in the Plaia of Catania

The Tourist Medical Guard at Plaja (Viale Kennedy, sn – ex Punto Blu) will be active from tomorrow. The Presidium will be operational from 8.00 to 20.00, on holidays and working days, and can be reached at +39 335.8268649. Users will be able to access it for minor illnesses that do not require going to the emergency room. An Info point for vaccinations will also be activated near the Medical Guard, which is currently being set up, with the possibility of receiving the vaccine in the premises of the Presidium itself.

Before its reactivation, the structure underwent ordinary and extraordinary maintenance interventions aimed at improving the standards of comfort and hospitality, and at adapting to the safety requirements. Unlike the ordinary medical guards, the tourist ones have as a priority objective the protection of the health of the tourist, who is not a resident and therefore, presumably, cannot go to his family doctor for a long time. For particular pathologies, the tourist can still contact any family doctor with agreement, as well as go to the emergency room, in the most serious and urgent cases.
