The time of free corona tests for everyone is over. Since Monday, people who do not belong to the group of authorized people have had to pay for the test out of their own pocket. The prospect of having to dig into their wallets again and again has apparently made some people rethink their vaccination decision.

Since Monday, people who do not belong to the group of authorized people have had to pay for the test out of their own pocket.

The prospect of having to dig into their wallets again and again has apparently made some people rethink their vaccination decision.

Fürstenfeldbruck - In the Fürstenfeldbruck vaccination center you have noticed for a few days that the interest in the free syringe is increasing. "We saw an increase last week," says Dr. Matthias Skrzypczak, medical director of the center. The doctor speaks of a "low three-digit number" of first vaccinations per day. There are also many young people among them. "I have the impression that the tests, which are no longer free of charge, play a role," says Skrzypczak. A few vaccine candidates would express their displeasure - and clearly state that they only got vaccinated because the tests now cost money.

"Money plays a role, especially with the younger generation," says the doctor.

Another factor is the recommendation of the vaccination commission for pregnant and breastfeeding women.

More women from this group now come to be vaccinated.


In the Corona rapid test station at the monastery in Fürstenfeldbruck, the first day of paid tests went very quietly, reports head Christina Schmiedel.

“Nobody grumbled,” said Schmiedel.

There was no trouble.

The majority of customers had already been informed about the change in advance.
