France's Versailles Palace hosts temporary vaccine center

As a bonus to getting vaccinated, people were treated to a special backdrop - the Orangerie, a building dating back to 1663 with a garden housing orange, lemon and pomegranate trees. Louis XIV gathered orange trees from royal houses Italy, Spain and Portugal to stock up the garden.

The building's 13-meter (42-feet) high ceiling and 150-meter (492-feet) central gallery is ideal for a vaccination site.

From May 25-May 29, about 5,000 people are set to receive their injections in the grand setting, according to local authorities.

On Friday (May 28), France had already given more than 24 million people, or 36% of the total population a first injection and and more than 11 million people have also received a second shot.
