Vaccinations in Germany: Hamburg lags behind
According to the Robert Koch Institute, only 46 percent of Hamburg’s population has so far been fully vaccinated. This is one of the worst values compared to the whole country. Only in Saxony is the number of vaccinated people even lower.
On Saturday, the Social Affairs Office made it possible for the residents of Hamburg to vaccinate themselves in market halls for the second time without an appointment. According to the doctor Dirk Heinrich, 1,849 people took advantage of the open offer.
