Anger and effort: More and more people in Bavaria postpone the second vaccination appointment - "Reasons leave you speechless"


More and more people in Bavaria want to postpone their second vaccination against the corona virus. Others do not log off at all. The organizers can only shake their heads.

- The vaccinations against the corona virus * are continuing.

Over 30 million cans have already been inoculated across Germany.

With 28.9 percent of all residents who have already been vaccinated against the coronavirus * at least once, Bavaria is in fifth place in Germany in the federal state rankings.

Nevertheless, there is still a long way to go to herd immunity, especially since only 7.5 percent of the Bavarian population are already fully vaccinated.

Only those who have also received their second dose will in future be equated with people who tested negative.

Corona vaccinations in Bavaria: Many appointments missed - enormous effort

It is all the more surprising that more and more people are apparently now wanting to postpone the dates for their Corona * second vaccination. Others do not make an appointment at all, although they have previously registered with the vaccination portal or do not appear at the vaccination centers at the agreed time. All of this poses a huge challenge and effort for the organizers, but the latter is particularly annoying. As Munich health officer Beatrix Zurek

reports to



, about five percent of all people who should have been vaccinated with the Astrazeneca * vaccine at the vaccination center in Munich did not show up for their appointment - about four times as many as with the vaccines from Biontech * or Moderna *.

Second vaccinations against Corona: More and more requests to postpone appointments - reasons leave you speechless

In addition, according to Zurek, a total of around 60,000 persons eligible for vaccination in priority groups * 1 and 2 did not make an appointment for a first vaccination despite registering on the BAYIMCO portal.

The reasons for this can be varied, but Zurek appeals to everyone who does not want to make an appointment at the vaccination center to delete their account in order to make it easier for the organizers to plan the vaccine division of the corona vaccination doses *.

It is currently often problematic, especially with the second vaccination.

The vaccination centers complain that appointments are often not kept.

A postponement of the appointment, often weeks in advance, would also be requested more than average.

In the Lankdreis Rottal-Inn alone, 15 to 20 percent of those eligible for vaccination should apply for their second appointment to be postponed.

A wish that cannot always be realized.

Corona in Bavaria: Whitsun vacation?

Vaccineees plan optimistically

Especially not if the organizers cannot understand the reasons for this. Eva Arbinger, head of the Rottaler Vaccination Center, names some of the most frequently mentioned reasons for postponing appointments, which noticeably often take place around the Whitsun holidays, including business trips, weddings or vacation trips. Especially when it comes to leisure appointments, one should be surprised, as larger gatherings of people have so far been prohibited and vacation trips are hardly possible - at least without an obligation to quarantine. But that seems to mean nothing to many people now. The city of Weiden even speaks of reasons for postponement "which leave you speechless". Many vaccination centers now want to start accepting only medical and professional reasons for postponement.
