Mini vaccination centers in county inoculate latest Omikron vaccine
Starting immediately, the latest Corona vaccine, which is also designed to protect against the omicron variant BA.4-5, will be vaccinated at the district's mini-vaccination centers. Vaccinations will be offered in Korbach and Bad Wildungen on October 8, and in Frankenberg on October 29.
At the new location of the Korbach Mini Vaccination Center at Briloner Landstraße 35, there will be the opportunity to be vaccinated this coming Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; in Bad Wildungen at the train station from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.. There, anyone twelve years of age or older can get boostered with the Corona vaccine tailored to Omikron variant BA.4-5. A second booster vaccination may be given to persons 60 years of age or older or those at increased risk for severe COVID-19 due to underlying disease. The last vaccination should have been at least three months ago.
"The latest adapted vaccine is the one that has a particularly high efficacy against the currently prevalent variant of coronavirus BA4/BA5," says Thomas Hetche, head of the health department at the district. "Vaccination with it would thus be favored." The Waldeck-Frankenberg district continues to call on people to take advantage of the public vaccination offers in order to protect themselves and others against the coronavirus in the best possible way. In this context, reference is also made once again to the facility-related vaccination obligation, which has been in force for certain facilities since the middle of March this year - and makes vaccination mandatory for certain occupational groups.
The following should be brought to the vaccination: The health insurance card and, if possible, the vaccination card, identity card and, if possible, the completed educational information sheets and medical history and information sheets for the respective vaccines.
