In Hamburg, a resourceful entrepreneur is fighting Corona in his own way - with a mix of Biontech, Bentley and a spectacular view of the Port of Hamburg.
Hamburg - In Germany, the vaccination quota is still at a comparatively low level compared to other European countries.
68.1 percent of the population are fully immunized.
Most of the neighboring European countries are significantly further ahead.
Although the city-state is doing very well with a vaccination rate of 73.7 percent and is thus at least 3rd place nationwide, there is still room for improvement in the Hanseatic city.
In order to further increase the quota, the Hamburg car dealer David Finest Sports Cars, together with the VW * luxury brand Bentley, has now launched a spectacular and PR-oriented campaign.
If you want to be vaccinated or boosted against corona, you can have a driver pick you up with a luxury car on Wednesday.
Those willing to be vaccinated are then chauffeured in the Bentley Bentayga or the Flying Spur to the “Skyline Bar 20up” in the Hamburg district of St. Pauli.
There is then the syringe.
Corona campaign: First the prick, then the drink
The only requirement: the pick-up address must be within a 30-minute drive from the Landungsbrücken. Whoever fulfills this can look forward to an all-round pampering program. In addition to the free chauffeur service and vaccination with Biontech, there is a spectacular view from the 20th floor of the port of Hamburg. After the prick there is also a cocktail called "Jack Sparrow" - of course strictly vaccination-compliant, alcohol-free and also free. According to a spokeswoman, the 50 vaccination slots were gone within a few days. 40 people willing to vaccinate had chosen the shuttle option.
"With the campaign we wanted to set an example for vaccination and trade," the company spokeswoman told
After the corona restrictions last year, customer contacts have decreased significantly.
Now they want to make at least a small contribution in the fight against Corona *.
