Corona: high vaccination rates in urban senior facilities

Up to and including Monday, January 11, 2021, a total of 1600 people have been vaccinated against the Corona virus in twelve senior citizen facilities in Bonn. By January 14, another 1144 vaccinations are scheduled in eleven additional senior citizen homes.

These figures have been communicated to the city of Bonn by the Kassenärztliche Vereinigung Nordrhein. With residual vaccine doses from vaccinations in senior citizens' homes available at short notice, around 80 people from the emergency services have been vaccinated so far.

In the meantime, the first vaccination series has been completed in the three facilities of the city's senior centers. In the process, 320 residents and 307 employees were vaccinated. This corresponds to a vaccination rate of 90.4 percent among residents and 76.5 percent among employees.

Appeal to nursing staff

The city is pleased with the high vaccination rate among its staff in the three senior citizen facilities. Bonn's head of health, Margarete Heidler, is taking this as an opportunity to make an appeal to the nursing staff in the homes for the elderly: "Please get vaccinated against the coronavirus for your own protection, but also for the protection of the people you care for or work with."

Vaccination information letter

During the week beginning Monday, January 18, 2021, there will be a letter from the state and city to all people over the age of 80 in Bonn that will provide information about vaccination and how to get it. The vaccination center at the World Conference Center Bonn is expected to begin operations in early February. As announced by the state of NRW, it will be possible to make appointments by phone or online starting Monday, January 25, 2021.

The coordination office at the vaccination center is expected to manage the logistics for all vaccinations in Bonn from January 18. Vaccinations in hospitals are also expected to begin on that date. Operations at the vaccination center for citizens over 80 years of age are expected to begin in early February.


Since Wednesday, January 6, 2021, the City Order Service recorded a total of 207 health protection missions. In this context, on the evening of January 8, there was a report of a party with numerous guests in Beuel. On site, the task forces encountered 15 people. Since one person refused to give his personal details, the police were called in. During further checks, one person tried to flee; the staff prevented this. Appropriate charges will be filed against all persons.

In due course, the city reminds that recreational and amateur sports activities continue to be prohibited on and in all public and private sports facilities.
