"I am very happy that we can start with low-threshold vaccinations on site," says Mayor Katja Dörner. "We have finally received the allocation of a corresponding vaccine quota. Now we want to make vaccination offers without an appointment in different city districts in the next few days to reach as many people as possible."
As part of its low-incidence strategy, the city government has been targeting different neighborhoods in recent weeks to educate people about the Corona vaccine. Face-to-face meetings and multilingual flyers were used to provide information in neighborhoods where incidence levels have been high in recent weeks.
Among other things, an educational campaign took place last Friday, July 2, 2021 at "Haus Vielinbusch" in Tannenbusch. In the education and family center now follows the first vaccination campaign on site. Four vaccination streets will be set up for this purpose. Mobile vaccination teams from the Kassenärztliche Vereinigung Nordrhein (North Rhine Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians), employees of the municipal health department and many helpers from the center will ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible.
Please bring your identity card and vaccination certificate, if available. Immunization records will be filled out on site.
For this special vaccination campaign, the city of Bonn receives vaccine from Johnson & Johnson from the state of NRW. The big advantage is that people only have to be vaccinated once with this vaccine. Vaccination with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine protects against severe courses of the disease, including against the delta variant of the coronary virus.
After the kick-off in Tannenbusch, further on-site vaccination campaigns will take place in other districts of Bonn in the coming days. The city administration will inform in time.
Vaccinations also possible at the vaccination center and in practices
Appointments for vaccination can also be made with doctors in private practice. Likewise, anyone over the age of 16 can be vaccinated with Biontec or Moderna at the Bonn Vaccination Center. Appointments can be booked online at www.116117.de and by telephone via the central number 116 117 or the additional number (0800) 116 117 01.
Children aged 12 to under 16 for whom vaccination is recommended by the Standing Commission on Vaccination (STIKO) (for example, because of a previous illness) will be offered vaccination at their pediatrician's or family doctor's office.
