The state government has already raised this issue several times at the federal level, said Reimann. She very much hope that the federal vaccination ordinance will be adapted soon. According to the HAZ, Lower Saxony also wants to enable its vaccination centers to vaccinate people from the second priority group under 65 years of age earlier. It is therefore primarily about resident doctors and other medical staff with patient contact.
The MDR reported, citing statements by the Saxon Health Minister Petra Köpping (SPD), that teachers and daycare staff could soon be offered a vaccination with the AstraZeneca vaccine. Brandenburg’s Prime Minister Dietmar Woidke (SPD) asked in a letter to Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU) to examine the extent to which those from the third group of the vaccination sequence could already be vaccinated with the sufficiently available AstraZeneca product. “This would also enable teachers and educators to be vaccinated more quickly,” it says.
According to the current Corona Vaccination Ordinance, educators and teachers are only in the third group (increased priority). Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and the heads of government of the federal states asked the Ministry of Health at their most recent consultation to examine a higher prioritization of primary school teachers and daycare teachers.
