BUp to 1500 people in Wiesbaden should be vaccinated against the corona virus every day as soon as a vaccine is available. In order to cope with this, the state skin city tested its new vaccination center in the Rhein-Main Congress Center at the weekend. “Everything went very well,” is the conclusion of Mayor Gert-Uwe Mende (SPD). As a result, as requested by the state government, the Wiesbadeners can report the readiness of their vaccination center on December 11th. They are not alone in this, because the 26 cities and districts in Hesse have so far reported 28 locations for vaccination centers to the Corona Task Force, the Ministry of the Interior announced on Monday.

However, there are still many unanswered questions. For example, it is not clear which vaccine should be used. The country is waiting for approval and the federal decision, but is also preparing for several vaccines to be used. Since 60 percent of all Hessen and thus around 3.8 million people are to be immunized, around 7.6 million doses of vaccine are required, according to the Interior Ministry. The ampoules are to be safely stored at different locations in Hessen and delivered from there to the vaccination centers. For this purpose, the country wants to use specialized logistics companies that enable the cold chain not to be interrupted. The delivery is to take place with special vehicles in which special cooling containers cool the vaccine down to the required temperature with the help of dry ice.
