Germany: Minister of Health expects young people to receive COVID vaccines by summer |  DW News

Injections could take place at school Several northern German states end their summer vacations on July 31, whereas late-starters, notably Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg, end their breaks in mid-September.  The federal government and state leaders have already agreed that students could be offered their doses either at school or be invited to visit local vaccinations centers run by Germany’s more than 400 rural counties and major municipalities, Spahn said.

Spahn voiced hope that adolescents could soon be offered a BioNTech-Pfizer jab once regulators approve it for kids The approval would apply to the BioNTech-Pfizer vaccine, which has been given the green light for youths by regulators in the US and Canada.

Because Germany’s 16 states stagger their school summer breaks to avoid transport network overloads, the time frame for when pupils could be offered a jab could depend on where they live. “The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has said that today: If nothing unforeseen happens, at the end of May, beginning of June, the approval can be granted,” he told public radio Deutschlandfunk.

“These vaccines are very good and very effective, in some cases even more effective than BioNTech, especially among the elderly,” he said. “If we can keep this up together, it can be a good summer,” said Spahn as Germany’s infection rate per 100,000 residents sank further Tuesday to 115. “In fact, I can only appeal to those over 60 who are offered an AstraZeneca or Johnson & Johnson vaccine to accept it,” said Spahn.

He also urged senior citizens to not to shun other manufacturers’ vaccines. One third of all Germany’s residents have now received at least a first injection, said Spahn, citing Germany’s Robert Koch Institute.
