Yes please - I can see planning coming up for vaccinations centers here 
in Germany and these are not planned in hospitals but in vacant commercial
buildings which have loads of parking spaces. So using some
healthcare specific tag is probably misleading.

These will be temporary things (Timeframe be years) but LOADS of people
will try to find it. And its a global issue.
