Vaccinations at the new location of the Korbach Vaccination Center starting July 16.

The Korbach Mini Vaccination Center has moved to a new location: Starting next Saturday, vaccinations against the coronavirus will then be available at Briloner Landstraße 35b in Korbach. Starting in August, vaccinations will then be offered there every first Saturday of the month.

The background is that the small Hauerhalle, where the vaccination center was housed in recent months, can be reopened for club and school sports. The first vaccination day in the new mini-vaccination center is July 16 from 10 am to 1 pm. Starting in August, vaccinations will then also take place regularly at the Briloner Landstrasse facility, as they do in Frankenberg, every first Saturday of the month from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Access to the new premises of the Korbach Mini Vaccination Center is via Louis-Peter-Strasse.

You can still get vaccinated against the coronavirus in Frankenberg every first Saturday of the month from 10 am to 1 pm. The vaccinations take place as before in the lower building of the district hospital. In Bad Wildungen, vaccinations will continue to be offered in Bahnhof on July 30 and August 13 and 27 - in each case from 9 am to 1 pm.

Childhood vaccinations in Korbach and Bad Wildungen
Some time ago, the Standing Commission on Vaccination also updated its vaccination recommendation for children aged five to eleven: According to this, girls and boys of this age without previous illnesses should receive a vaccination with an mRNA vaccine. Previously, the recommendation was that only five- to eleven-year-olds with pre-existing conditions should be vaccinated, and children who have frequent contact with people in their environment who are at high risk for a severe course. Therefore, at all vaccination dates at the Korbach and Bad Wildungen sites, children's vaccinations are offered at all times in parallel with the adult vaccination. The Waldeck-Frankenberg district continues to call for people to take advantage of public vaccination opportunities to best protect themselves and others against the coronavirus.
