District / Penzing - Vaccine is running out - but only BioNtech's.
That is why the vaccine from the US manufacturer Moderna is mainly used for booster vaccinations, reports District Office press spokesman Wolfgang Müller.
BioNtech is capped at 1,020 vaccination doses per week and vaccination center, according to Müller.
However, the STIKO has limited the Moderna fabric to over 30-year-olds, as there is a low risk of heart muscle inflammation in younger people.
That is why Penzing is currently vaccinating almost exclusively Moderna, especially for booster vaccinations.
Stiko also sees no problems for cross-vaccinating BioNtech and Moderna. The latest studies have shown that this can even provide better protection against Covid 19 disease. However, the booster vaccination should be carried out five months after the second vaccination at the earliest.
With this, Müller also reacts to a request from the CIRCULAR EMBASSY.
According to information from the editors, a caller who wanted to make an appointment for the booster received the information on the hotline that the booster should be given at least six months after the full vaccination protection.
If this second point was only five months ago, they are sent away again.
The fact that people were being sent away could also be read more often on social media.
One is rigorous with the period of five months, so Müller.
Because there are also people over 70 who had the second vaccination more than six months ago and who first wanted to protect them with a booster vaccination.
