Previously, this was only possible at the three vaccination centres in Wedding, Messe and Tegel - and only between 2 and 5 pm. Also new: In addition to the vaccine from Moderna, the agent from Biontech is now also used for the spontaneous vaccinations. "We are opening all doors to people and inviting them to vaccinate," Kalayci said. "Now we are asking those who are still hesitant to in turn take a step towards all of us and accept the offer." Important: Vaccinations with prior appointment are reportedly still possible.
