BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – The Corona booster vaccinations should increase significantly and strengthened with the vaccine from Moderna instead of Biontech be made. The Federal Ministry of Health emphasized on Friday that enough vaccine for such “boosters” would be available by the end of the year. Since the preparation from Biontech has so far made up more than 90 percent of orders, Moderna should be used more and more. This should ensure that sufficient vaccine is available in the short term. In addition, stored Moderna cans expired from the middle of the first quarter of 2022, but this must be avoided.

For Biontech, “maximum order quantities” are to be defined, as stated in a letter from the ministry to the federal states. First, the editorial network Germany reported (Saturday) about it. For the time being, practices should be able to order a maximum of 30 doses per week, vaccination centers and mobile vaccination teams 1020 doses. “Orders for Moderna vaccine are not subject to a maximum limit and are fully supplied,” says the letter, which is also available to the German press agency.

In the practices, due to the limitation in Biontech orders from November 23rd, a significantly increased need for advice can be expected, said the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians (KBV). “As a result, most of the patients who were vaccinated with Biontech as part of their basic immunization will now – if they are over 30 years old – receive a booster vaccination with Moderna,” said KBV Vice-President Stephan Hofmeister.
