Corona vaccinations of children 12 years and older in the vaccination center

The Federal City of Bonn continues to call on people to be vaccinated against the coronavirus. Vaccinations without an appointment are possible at the mobile vaccination campaigns on site as well as at the vaccination center in the WorldCCBonn.

The vaccination bus will be at Münsterplatz on Thursday and Friday, August 19 and 20, from 12 to 6 p.m., and on Saturday, August 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the flea market in the Rheinaue. The vaccination center is open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. up to and including Sept. 1. On September 2, vaccinations will be offered from 8 to 20 in the vaccination bus.

Immunizations of children and adolescents 12 and older will take place daily at the Immunization Center. The city will notify secondary schools accordingly. 12- to 15-year-olds must be accompanied by at least one parent, and adolescents 16 and older may be vaccinated without parental consent, provided the necessary ability to understand and consent to vaccination is assumed. 

Initial vaccinations for students* 12 years of age and older in general secondary schools shall be administered at the Immunization Center. Second vaccinations will take place on site after consultation with the schools. In this context, the city administration asks that vaccination appointments of children that have already been made with the pediatricians in private practice be kept.

In Bonn, a total of 242,121 first vaccinations and 223,059 second vaccinations have taken place to date.

Current Corona figures

Corona incidence has continued to rise over the past few days and stands at 104.6 as of Wednesday, August 18, 2021, bringing the total number of confirmed new infections over the past seven days to 345. The incidence of infection continues to be largely due to travelers returning home and infections in the home environment. There is currently one positive case in a daycare center.

Currently, 424 persons are infected with the coronavirus. While 14,687 people have recovered in the interim, 256 people have died in association with Corona. The 256th death is a man, born in 1941; information on previous illnesses is not available to city officials.

In total, 15,367 laboratory-confirmed Corona cases have occurred in Bonn since February 28, 2020. Currently, 897 people are in quarantine.

As of Tuesday, August 17, 2021, 28 people from Bonn and the surrounding area who have contracted Covid-19 are in Bonn hospitals. 18 people are being cared for in normal wards, ten are in intensive care units, and four of them have to be ventilated.

New corona protection regulation from August 20

The state of North Rhine-Westphalia has published a new corona protection ordinance. It is valid from August 20 up to and including September 17, 2021. 

In accordance with the joint decisions of the federal and state consultations, the corona protection ordinance with its new system no longer contains any measure levels, but only links the application of the 3G rule (vaccinated, recovered, tested) to an incidence of 35 or more. Thus, in the city of Bonn, the following facilities, services and activities may only be used, visited or performed by vaccinated, recovered or tested persons:

  • Indoor catering services
  • Body-related services such as hairdressing, cosmetics or personal hygiene
  • Lodging establishments
  • Tourist bus tours as well as children/youth and family recreational trips
  • Events in public spaces, in particular in educational, cultural, sports and leisure facilities, using indoor spaces, trade fairs and congresses held indoors, as well as all sports and wellness offers and comparable offers held indoors. The 3G rule does not apply to normal visits to museums or libraries, for example.
  • Outdoor events with more than 2,500 active participants, visitors or spectators at any one time (large-scale events).

Stricter rules apply to clubs, discotheques and dance events (including private parties with dancing), brothels and similar establishments: Here, non-immunized persons require a PCR test.

There are no longer any restrictions for sports events on sports fields (i.e., outdoors) below 2,500 participants. Sports clubs also do not have to obtain proof for their outdoor training programs. Only indoor sports (i.e., sports halls) are subject to the restriction that only immunized or tested persons may take part in these offerings. A maximum of 25,000 spectators (including immunized and recovered persons) may be admitted to large sporting events; above 5,000 spectators, a maximum of 50 percent capacity is permitted.

In principle, at least one medical mask (so-called surgical mask) must be worn on buses, trains and cabs, in waiting lines and queuing areas, at sports/cultural and other outdoor events with more than 2,500 people, and indoors where several people congregate. Children up to school age are exempt from the requirement to wear a mask. There are numerous exceptions where masks do not have to be worn, including in catering establishments at fixed seating or standing areas (if a distance of 1.5 meters is maintained between tables or a structural partition is in place).

Regardless of the incidence value, only immunized or tested persons are allowed to enter hospitals, nursing homes, special forms of housing for integration assistance and similar facilities, inpatient social welfare facilities, and collective accommodations for refugees as visitors.

The other proven AHA rules of conduct (keep your distance, observe hygiene and everyday life with a mask) remain recommended for private individuals.
