The district's mini-vaccination centres in Korbach and Frankenberg will close at the end of the year. The last vaccination appointment will be offered in Korbach on 10 December and in Frankenberg on 17 December. After that, vaccinations will continue to be carried out as usual in the general practitioners' practices.
The reason for closing the sites is the relatively low demand, which is in proportion to a large organisational and financial effort, which will also no longer be supported by the federal government from 2023. Against this background, the vaccination services organised by the district in the medium-sized centres will no longer be continued. The last vaccinations in the mini-vaccination centre in Korbach, Briloner Landstraße 35, will be possible next Saturday, 10 December from 10 am to 1 pm. In Frankenberg, they will be offered on 17 December from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the lower part of the building of the district hospital in Forststraße.
In Bad Wildungen you can still get vaccinated this year on Saturday, 17 December from 9 am to 1 pm. It is expected that the vaccination offer at the train station, which is provided by the paediatrician's practice Dr Mathias Bauer, will continue in the new year, but can no longer be supported by the district in this form and will then be offered by the practice alone.
The district once again calls on people to make good use of the last vaccination dates this year. In all vaccination centres, booster vaccinations can also be carried out with the new vaccines from BioNTech and Moderna adapted to the Omikron variant. The last vaccination should have taken place at least four months ago. Questions on the subject of vaccination can be answered by the district's health service on the Corona hotline at tel. 05631 - 954 555.
