Watch the video: Large crowds in Berlin’s Impf”Focal point” Senate are overwhelmed.

This is what it can look like when people call for so-called district vaccination in Berlin. Long queues formed there on Friday in the district of Neukölln in mixed weather. For residents from the neighborhood no appointment was necessary, they could simply come to the converted gym. The motivation among the aspirants was high. “So we’re standing, we’ve been here for nine, exactly. And then, of course, we only stood for an hour until it started. And then it actually started at 10. And since then, progress has been continuous, slow, but steady.””Apparently, no one knows how much doses are really planned per day and basically on weekends. That’s why we hope now. But we are very confident.”State Secretary Martin Matz from the Senate Department of Health was also confident. “We are here on the first day of our’ vaccination in the district’, and we are really overwhelmed by how much demand there is already on the first day. We could vaccinate considerably more people today than we actually will because we are here today with four mobile vaccination teams. This will be enough for about 400 vaccinations. Maybe we can do a few more, but then we are also limited for today.”You start in Neukölln with about 10,000 doses of Moderna and Johnson & Johnson, according to Berlin’s health senator Dilek Kalayci, who campaigned for vaccination in what she called” socially disadvantaged districts”. For three days, the residents here in Neukölln initially have the opportunity for comparatively uncomplicated immunization. In Germany, the seven-day incidence has now fallen below 100 nationwide for the first time since 20 March. On Friday, Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn cited precautions and corona restrictions as one reason for the decline, as well as increasing vaccinations. On Wednesday and Thursday alone, two percent of the population had been vaccinated.
