The vaccine of the US manufacturer Moderna is used in the event hall with cycle racing track in the district of Pankow, as the spokeswoman of the vaccination centres, Regina Kneiding, told the Deutsche Presse-Agentur on Monday. The facility will be operated by Johanniter Unfallhilfe. It will initially be open daily from 9 am to 2 pm.
As the Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG) announced on Monday, the new vaccination centre can be reached by the trams of the lines M5, M6 and M8, the bus line 156 and by the Ringbahn lines of the S-Bahn. The stop is Landsberger Allee.
For those who come by car, BVG initially offers a daily shuttle service with two minibuses from 8.30 pm to 1.30 pm. According to BVG, they will drive from the multi-storey car park in the Forum Landsberger Allee to the vaccination centre and back, because there are no parking spaces directly at the Velodrom. According to the information, the journey takes about six minutes each way.
