Corona vaccination: teachers and educators get their turn earlier | – Nachrichten – Hamburg


Status: 02/23/2021 6:40 a.m.

Teachers at primary schools and special needs schools as well as educators should be vaccinated earlier.  The  federal and state health ministers agreed on this on Monday.

In the next few weeks they will still not get their turn, according to the Hamburg social welfare authority. ©

 The  approximately 60,000 employees of the Hamburg schools and daycare centers are now sliding up into the second vaccination group. However, around 200,000 Hamburgers are already waiting there. Because there is not enough vaccine for everyone now, there will also be a sequence within this vaccination group.

Priority should still be given to those over 80 years of age for the vaccine from Biontech, or those over 75 years of age in the second vaccination group. ©

 The  AstraZeneca agent is then primarily used for the professional groups that are now also called up. A good 40,000 doses of this can probably be administered in Hamburg in March. Not even enough to meet the needs of resident doctors, midwives and health care workers.

Vaccinations for pre-ill patients

People with serious pre-existing illnesses are then also on the list before the teachers. In March there will therefore be no offer for teachers, educators, it is said from the social authority.

One reason for this is that AstraZeneca’s vaccine appears to be better received than in other federal states. (02/22/2021) more

 The  decision is a departure from the principle of vaccinating the most vulnerable groups first, says Alena Buyx. More corona news in the live ticker. more
