Vaccination center at the exhibition center to close at the end of February
The vaccination center at Messe Berlin will cease operations on February 28. In March, the vaccination centers at the ICC, the former Tegel Airport, Ikea Lichtenberg and the Ring Center as well as the vaccination drive-thru in Lichtenberg will still be available. The background for the closures is the dwindling utilization rate of the vaccination centers. According to the Senate, around two-thirds of vaccinations are currently carried out by general practitioners and specialist doctors. In addition, pharmacies now also offer Coronavirus vaccinations.
