New dates for the mini vaccination centers, new location for Korbach

In the coming weeks and months, you can continue to get vaccinated against the coronavirus at the district's mini-vaccination centers - in Korbach, Frankenberg and Bad Wildungen. The mini-vaccination centers in Korbach and Frankenberg are once again adjusting their vaccination times. The Korbach center is moving to a new location.

Vaccinations in Frankenberg
In Frankenberg, you can get vaccinated against the coronavirus every first Saturday of the month from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. starting in June. The first date for this is June 4. The vaccinations will continue to take place as before in the lower building of the district hospital.

Vaccinations in Korbach
In Korbach, two more dates are offered in June in the small Hauerhalle: June 4 and 18 - from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day. After that, the mini-vaccination center will move within Korbach to a new location at Briloner Landstraße 35b. The background to this is that the small Hauerhalle can then be reopened for club and school sports. In the new premises at Briloner Landstraße 35b, there will then initially be a vaccination service on July 16 from 10 am to 1 pm. Starting in August, vaccinations at the new location will then also take place regularly, as 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.

Vaccinations in Bad Wildungen
There are no changes to the previous vaccination times in Bad Wildungen. Vaccinations will continue to be offered at the train station as before - but every second Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Childhood vaccinations in Korbach and Bad Wildungen
Recently, 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 the public vaccination opportunities to best protect themselves and others against the coronavirus.
