"This has now become possible, and of course we will implement this here in Berlin as soon as possible," said Gote on Wednesday during a visit to the vaccination centre in the ICC Congress Centre. Until now, this option was only available for adults. Already on Monday, Federal Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (SPD) had written to the federal states to draw their attention to this possibility.
