Extension of the special campaign from Friday

This special vaccination campaign has already been running since Monday (Jan. 10, 2022) at the ICC vaccination center. From Friday (Jan. 14), the offer will be extended to the vaccination centers at the former Tegel Airport, at Messe Berlin, and at the Karlshorst horse racing track. Appointments can be booked online or by phone call via the vaccination hotline. The special campaign ends next Friday (Jan. 21).

First, second or third vaccination possible

The campaign includes both first and second vaccinations as well as booster vaccinations with the Biontech vaccine. In general, vaccine choice in Berlin depends on a person's age: people between 12 and 29 years of age receive the vaccine from Biontech/Pfizer, while those over 30 are vaccinated with Spikevax from Moderna. From January 21, these guidelines will apply once again at all of the vaccination centers mentioned above. For individuals who received an initial vaccination with the Comirnaty vaccine from Biontech/Pfizer during the campaign week, the second vaccination will also be given with the Biontech vaccine.
