Corona: Vaccinations with Astrazeneca have started again

After the vaccination freeze for Astrazeneca has been lifted, the City of Bonn has already resumed immunizations with the vaccine on Friday morning, March 19, 2021. On this day alone, around 400 people will be vaccinated with Astrazeneca.

A total of 5,600 free appointments will be available up to and including March 28. The 30 or so different groups of people eligible for vaccination in the first and second priority groups include, for example, educators, staff in schools and doctors' surgeries, midwives or police officers and law enforcement officers. 

The free personnel capacities and the vaccines still available from Biontech have been used since March 16 for mobile vaccinations in the home of persons with care levels 4 and 5. Here, 95 people have already been vaccinated, with another 70 or so people now following per day.

Over 80-year-olds from the district can book appointments in Bonn

The vaccinations of Bonn residents over 80 years old with Biontech have continued seamlessly in recent days. Since vaccine and appointments are available, Bonn had proposed to also immunize over 80-year-olds from the Rhein-Sieg district at the Bonn Vaccination Center at the World Conference Center, due to a lack of appointments there. 

According to the Kassenärztliche Vereinigung Nordrhein (North Rhine Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians), which is responsible for appointments for seniors over 80, appointments will be available for eligible over-80s from the Rhein-Sieg district at the Bonn Immunization Center starting March 29, and can be booked through the portals there starting today, March 19.

Incidentally, around 500 people have responded to the city's call last week to the approximately 3,500 Bonn residents over the age of 80 who have not yet had themselves vaccinated to register for immunization; they now have the appropriate appointments.

40,730 initial vaccinations in Bonn

To date, 40,730 initial vaccinations have been carried out in Bonn, and 17,057 people have already received their second immunization. Of these, 17,691 first and 3,563 second vaccinations have taken place at the Vaccination Center in the World Conference Center Bonn.

No further openings for March 22

Meanwhile, the state of North Rhine-Westphalia has rejected further openings on March 22, 2021. The current Corona Protection Ordinance holds out the prospect of further openings from next Monday, for example in outdoor catering, theaters, concert halls, opera houses and cinemas, as well as in sports, if the 7-day incidence is stable or falling in North Rhine-Westphalia below 100 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants per week. In view of the current incidence of infection, with a rising weekly incidence nationwide (as of today, Friday, it is 96.4), "it cannot be assumed that the incidence will fall below the given mark, nor is there a stable infection situation," the state said. 

Incidence value in Bonn is 63.7

The Corona incidence value related to 100,000 inhabitants in Bonn has increased again and amounts to 63.7 on Friday, March 19, 2021. 210 confirmed new infections have occurred in the past seven days. 

Since February 28, 2020, a total of 9,958 confirmed Covid 19 cases have been recorded. 9379 individuals are considered recovered and 374 acutely infected. Currently, 13 schools and daycare centers are affected by isolated cases. 205 people have died in association with coronavirus. The most recent fatality is a 94-year-old woman; the city does not know if there were pre-existing conditions. 1254 Bonn residents are currently in quarantine.

There are currently 64 people from Bonn and the surrounding area in Bonn hospitals who have contracted Covid-19. 35 patients are being cared for in normal wards, 29 people are in intensive care units, 16 of whom require ventilation.
