BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – The German Association of Cities has asked the federal and state governments to create sufficient corona vaccine reserves and to guarantee permanent vaccination capacities in the cities. “People will also need booster vaccinations in the new year 2022, we are firmly assuming this. A shortage of vaccine and insufficient vaccination capacities can no longer exist in the third Corona year,” President Markus Lewe told the newspapers of the Funke media group (online Wednesday , Print Thursday).

“We expect the federal and state governments to ensure the supply of vaccines and fill the reserve stocks for the next wave,” said the CDU politician, who is the mayor of Münster. The new year is also about preparing for pandemic cases on a permanent basis. The federal government and the federal states should therefore “not give up the vaccination capacities in the cities too quickly, but reserve them permanently for further waves of vaccinations”.

“How many vaccination capacities are necessary for this should be learned from the experiences of this winter,” said Lewe. “Because we are currently experiencing that the resident doctors cannot manage the rush alone when a large number of people need a booster vaccination in a short period of time.” The regional vaccination centers set up around a year ago when the vaccination campaign started had been scaled back or closed in many places in the summer./sku/DP/jha
