We are pleased to inform you that in order to cover the students that for one reason or another missed the opportunity to be tested at school, we shall be organising a 1-day event. The testing will be held in our offices in Naxxar and will be performed by MUMN nurses, just as it was done in the schools. Parents of children aged 4-12 years that have not yet been tested may book a slot per child using one of the following links. The full address and a google map link is included as well in the booking system.
Kindly note that the booking will be on a first come first served basis, hence I urge you not to take too long to book as there are limited places. Please note also that the event will be cancelled if there will not be enough bookings. Any queries should be directed to [email protected].
The event created on 29th May is fully booked and a new link is being provided. Please use this link to book your slot:
If the slots will get fully booked once more, we will create another event for another date.
