Just under 60% of Berliners fully vaccinated

Since more and more people are vaccinated and thus protected from severe courses, the significance of the seven-day incidence is decreasing. For this reason, the number of hospital admissions, i.e. how many people infected with Corona had to undergo in-patient treatment, should also come into focus in the future. According to the Senate's situation report, 59.6 percent of Berliners were fully vaccinated on Monday.
