According to Health Minister Holetschek, booster vaccinations against Corona make sense and should come.
The vaccination strategy is also being changed for this.
Munich - Bavaria is preparing to offer booster vaccinations against Corona * in autumn.
“A booster vaccination should make sense from a preventive point of view alone.
Therefore, Bavaria has already geared its corona vaccination strategy to the new challenges.
The organization and orientation of the vaccination centers will be adjusted, ”said Health Minister Klaus Holetschek (CSU *) on Sunday.
"With our mobile teams, we will also be able to vaccinate the most vulnerable people in facilities."
Booster vaccination: Holetschek insists on reliable data
"Clear and unbureaucratic guidelines" are important to him as to which group is the first to receive a vaccination to refresh the previous vaccination protection. "I emphasized early on that we urgently need reliable statements from the federal government and the Standing Vaccination Commission." He will address this aspect on Monday in the conference of health ministers *.
The video conference on Monday is likely to be about vaccinating young people. According to a proposal by the Federal Ministry of Health, 12 to 17-year-olds should receive corona vaccination offers in all federal states. This emerges from a draft for a resolution of the conference of health ministers this Monday, which is available to the German press agency. "Corresponding medical information and, if necessary, the consent of the guardians are ensured," says the draft.
Holetschek said: “We in Bavaria have already decided in the cabinet that all young people should receive a vaccination offer with appropriate medical information. There are numerous special vaccination campaigns that are also aimed at schoolchildren and students. ”
