In Bonn, 222,088 people have now been vaccinated for the first time, and 167,765 already have full vaccination protection with a second vaccination. 96,000 vaccine doses were administered at the vaccination center in the WCCB, and just under as many in family doctor's offices. "The vaccination campaign has now reached a turning point," said Mayor Katja Dörner today. "Whereas for a long time we had too little vaccine and were far from being able to vaccinate all Bonners who wanted to be vaccinated, we are now in the gratifying position of being able to act much more flexibly." Thus, since the beginning of the week, those willing to be vaccinated without an appointment have also been vaccinated at the vaccination center in the WCCB. Adolescents aged 16 and older can also go to the vaccination center; they must provide parental consent for vaccination.
From July 19 to Aug. 1, the Immunization Center will operate exclusively on the early shift from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. due to significantly lower utilization. "Before the Immunization Center closes at the end of August, we would like to maximize its utilization until it closes. The vaccination center has proven itself, it works well. That's why we want to offer all those who want to be vaccinated one more time to come by easily and without an appointment. It is also easy to reach by public transport," said Margarete Heidler, head of the health department. The vaccination offer is flanked since last Saturday by mobile vaccination offers in the city districts.
Since sufficient vaccine is available, the aim is to increasingly address people who have not been reached so far. This includes adolescents aged 16 and older, for whom the Standing Commission on Vaccination (Stiko) recommends a Corona vaccination. "We can now go where the people are with the vaccination offers and thus hope to reach more young people and those who have so far not or not yet considered vaccination for themselves," says Katja Dörner.
The next dates of the mobile vaccination offers in the city districts are:
