Corona vaccinations: Hamburg now in the top group | – Nachrichten – Hamburg


Status: 02/22/2021 2:09 p.m.

Hamburg is now at the top when it comes to vaccination rates in a national comparison. This is probably also due to the fact that AstraZeneca’s corona vaccine is much better received than in other federal states.

More than 82,000 Hamburgers have now received at least one first dose of vaccine. That corresponds to 4.5 percent of the population. Only Thuringia has so far also achieved this quota. According to the social authority, the reason is the rush to the vaccination center on weekends. Even before the official call to the resident doctors on Monday, the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians invited the doctors to the vaccination center. Exceptionally, even without an appointment, the doctors were able to get the active ingredient from AstraZeneca at the weekend.

This vaccine is now also given to Hamburg residents from the second vaccination group, because in Germany it is only approved for people under 65 years of age. According to the latest studies from England, even the first injection protects very well against the course of serious illness.

Vaccination offers for other professional groups
