From 2023 no more extra offers from the municipalities

From next year, anyone who wants to be vaccinated against the coronavirus in NRW will probably only be able to do so from resident doctors and pharmacies. The districts and independent cities should only provide their stationary or mobile vaccination offers until the end of this year, as the Ministry of Health in Düsseldorf announced on Wednesday. Only in the event that, contrary to expectations, supplementary state vaccination services become necessary again should the municipalities prepare to be able to vaccinate 250 people per 100,000 inhabitants per week on a mobile basis in the short term. The state parliament must approve this plan, which is limited to the end of March.

"Vaccinations remain the most important protection against serious illnesses," emphasized Health Minister Karl-Josef Laumann (CDU). Everyone should check their vaccination protection and compare it with the current recommendations of the Standing Vaccination Commission. This advises, for example, over 60-year-olds and people with previous illnesses a second corona booster vaccination. "And get advice from the doctors or pharmacists," says Laumann.

In the past two years, the municipal vaccination offers have made an extremely important contribution to overcoming the corona pandemic, the minister said according to the announcement. "In the meantime, however, the general conditions have fortunately changed." According to figures from the ministry, only between 10 and 20 percent of all vaccinations in North Rhine-Westphalia have been administered in the vaccination centers or by so-called coordinating Covid vaccination units in the past few weeks.

Since October 2021, the corona vaccinations in North Rhine-Westphalia have mainly been carried out by the resident medical profession and, for some time now, by the pharmacist, the ministry announced. In every district and every independent city there are those Covid vaccination units that also offer stationary or mobile vaccination services as required. A ministry spokesman could not give an exact number because it depends on the local situation.
