Vaccination is at last!
The vaccination center in Munich-Riem has started operations.
Some very old people in Munich were given the injection first.
Munich - What takes a long time, finally makes you peep ... The Munich * vaccination center has been in operation since Wednesday - seven weeks after the city made the Riemer Messehalle C3 available for medical use.
Because there was not enough vaccine, the hall remained empty at first, there were only mobile vaccination teams in retirement homes and clinics.
Now it's finally getting started in Riem: On Wednesday, the first Munich residents of the highest risk group got the injection on site at the fair.
Coronavirus: 120,000 Munich residents belong to the highest priority level
A total of 450 appointments were activated up to and including Thursday.
The first and second vaccinations are then continued by medical staff at the weekend.
How many vaccination appointments can be made in the coming week depends on the number of vaccine doses available - and this has not yet been determined.
The first people to be vaccinated in Riem are very old - people around 100 years old.
Background: The coronavirus * is particularly dangerous for seniors.
And because there is not yet enough vaccine available for everyone, initially only people of the highest priority level are vaccinated (in addition to those over 80, this includes medical and nursing staff who are particularly at risk from their work).
In total, around 120,000 people in Munich fall into this highest priority level.
100-year-olds among the first to be vaccinated - "A good feeling"
Anneliese Hönig (100) was among the first picks in Riem on Wednesday.
The senior citizen, who came to the fair with her daughter, is delighted: “To be vaccinated is a good feeling.
There's a little bit of security.
I have grandchildren - I want to finally play with them again.
And I also want to spend carefree time with my children.
