Munich - The vaccinations in Bavaria against the corona virus * have been stagnating for some time.

The vaccination quota in the Free State is still far from the values ​​of 80 to 85 percent required by the experts.

The situation is different in hospitals and care facilities.

More than 90 percent of the employees there have now received full vaccination protection.

Corona in Bavaria: Hardly any staff losses at clinics due to new infections

On Friday, a spokesman for the Bavarian Hospital Society announced that there were no longer any significant vaccine pickings from the hospital staff. And according to the Ministry of Health in Munich *, only a few doctors and nurses have been absent due to corona infections in the past few weeks. Things looked different at the beginning of the pandemic. Many of the employees in medical facilities were infected with the virus * at the time. Meanwhile, there is “a very low number of outbreaks” at the hospitals, said the ministry spokeswoman.

With a vaccination rate of over 90 percent, the Bavarian clinic staff is setting a good example.

"We are very happy about the high vaccination quota in the Bavarian clinics and ask all clinic employees to advertise the vaccination in their private sphere," said Roland Engehausen, Managing Director of the Bavarian Hospital Association.

According to the RKI (as of September 24), just 61.4 percent of people in Bavaria are fully immunized.

This puts the Free State in twelfth place in Germany.

Bremen took first place with a rate of 74.2 percent.

Corona in Bavaria: Nine out of ten intensive care patients are not vaccinated

The vaccination skepticism seems to be great in Bavaria. A popular argument against vaccination * is that people who have been vaccinated can also become infected with the coronavirus. However, these cases are far less severe. "We see in the clinics how well the vaccination protects, since nine out of ten intensive care patients infected with Covid-19 are unvaccinated people," said Engehausen.

Hospitals have been able to inquire about the vaccination status of their employees since mid-September.

You also have the right to reject unvaccinated applicants.

But this is only one option.

The state government leaves this decision to the employers: "The state government therefore has no recommendations that new employees in care facilities only be hired if the new employees are fully vaccinated," said the spokeswoman for the Ministry of Health.
