The Hamburg doctor’s offices are preparing for the time after Easter: Then they can start with corona vaccinations.

In the next week, the practices have to order the first vaccine in their pharmacies. In the first few weeks, vaccination takes place with the active ingredient from Biontech. This is currently being delivered most reliably, according to the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians when asked by NDR 90.3.

18 vaccination doses per practice

The disadvantage is that this vaccine can only be stored in the refrigerator for a few days. And for home visits to patients, it must be transported very carefully, it must not be shaken. In the first week after Easter, each doctor’s practice that wants to vaccinate receives a maximum of 18 vaccine doses.

Ask practices: Do not call for vaccinations

At the end of April, vaccination should then pick up speed in the practices. The statutory health insurance physicians urgently request that patients do not report themselves. You will be called directly from the practices. In the beginning it will mainly be the over 80s.

Vaccination has already started in so-called specialized practices for chronically ill people. Likewise in the Evangelical Hospital Alsterdorf – there people with a mental disability, severe epilepsy or with trisomy 21 can be vaccinated.
