Corona vaccination in Berlin: "Come back in six hours"


My mother was already waiting in front of the »Arena« at Treptower Park when I slid up on my bike. She wore sunglasses as if she was expecting to be photographed. I felt like I was on a reality show.

In Israel I would already be over the mountain.

The Association of the International Press in Jerusalem has just informed me that from now on all foreign journalists older than 35 can be vaccinated.

I'm well over 35, but haven't lived in Tel Aviv since last April, but in Berlin again.

It still takes a while here.

Last week I accompanied my mother to Treptow for the vaccination.

She is 83 and therefore just about eligible for vaccination.

In front of the "Arena" at Treptower Park, where the vaccination center has been set up, taxis were piling up in the Siberian cold, as if the Berlinale bears were about to be awarded in the hall on the banks of the Spree.

In most taxi funds, individual older women sat like film divas.

The transfer is part of the vaccination service.

My mother also came from Steglitz by taxi.

She was already waiting in front of the gate when I slid up from Prenzlauer Berg on my bike.

My mother wore sunglasses as if she was expecting to be photographed.
