In the presence of Health Senator Dilek Kalayci (SPD), a 101-year-old senior citizen received a syringe with the vaccine from the Mainz-based company Biontech and the US pharmaceutical giant Pfizer at a nursing home in Steglitz on Sunday morning (December 27, 2020). For the launch, Berlin initially received 9750 vaccine doses, according to the health administration.

60 mobile vaccination teams on the job

The first step will be to vaccinate residents of nursing homes throughout Berlin who are considered a particularly vulnerable group. For this purpose, 60 mobile vaccination teams are available. They will travel to nursing homes throughout the city. In the future, 50 vaccinations per day are planned per team. The health senator expects the vaccinations of nursing home residents to last until early February.

Vaccination center in Treptow to start operating Sunday afternoon

The employees of the nursing homes are to be vaccinated in parallel. For this purpose, the largest of the six Berlin vaccination centers, with 80 vaccination booths, will go into operation on Sunday afternoon (2 p.m.). It has been set up in the Arena Hall in Treptow, where concerts and other events usually take place.
