Corona: City of Bonn expands its vaccination services

The Federal City of Bonn is expanding its corona vaccination services without an appointment. With the "Stadthaus", the health department has established the first inpatient vaccination station in accordance with the requirements of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. From Monday to Friday - either from morning to noon or from noon to afternoon - a total of five doctors perform first, second and third vaccinations against the corona virus.

Thus, on average, about 400 vaccinations can be offered per campaign. The next dates in the town hall (passage towards Weiherstrasse, between the town archives and the service center) are Thursday, November 18, 2021, 12 noon to 6 p.m. and Friday, November 19, 2021, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dates for the week beginning November 22 are yet to be published.  Beginning Nov. 24, vaccination priority will be given to those age 70 and older on Wednesdays at the Municipal Building from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Two days will also be offered until 8 p.m.

In total, nearly 15,000 vaccinations have been given during the city's mobile vaccination campaigns since mid-July.

Additional vaccinations on Saturdays in the Bonn-Info

With the offer in the Stadthaus, centrally located in the city as well as very well accessible by public transport, the city administration has had consistently positive experiences and has experienced the greatest popularity. For this reason, the health department is planning to open at least one more stationary vaccination center in the city center in the short term.

In addition, there will be open vaccination campaigns in the pedestrian zone on Saturdays 20 and 27 November, as well as on 4, 11 and 18 December from 12 to 17 o'clock in the Bonn Information, Windeckstraße 1.

In addition, mobile campaigns in the city districts are still being planned. The next opportunity for a first, second or booster vaccination is on Saturday, November 20, 2021, at the open vaccination campaign without an appointment at the Education and Family Center "Haus Vielinbusch", Oppelner Straße 130, in Tannenbusch from 1 to 6 pm. There will be three vaccination lanes there.

The city points out that at the vaccination campaigns - sometimes considerable - waiting times are to be expected and that there are large vaccination practices in the Beueler Brückenforum as well as in the Weißdornweg in Bad Godesberg.

Around 264,000 initial vaccinations in Bonn so far

Currently, the Health Department offers mobile vaccinations in facilities for refugees, the homeless, etc., and ensures that vaccinations are offered promptly via the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians in facilities for the elderly, facilities for integration assistance, and workshops.

To date, a total of 264,340 first, 258,512 second and 13,326 third vaccinations have been given in Bonn.

Incidence value 163.0 - Currently no supply bottlenecks in clinics

Meanwhile, the corona incidence value in Bonn has continued to rise. On Wednesday, November 17, it amounts to 163.0 per 100,000 inhabitants*. Accordingly, 539 new infections have been reported in the past seven days. Currently, there are 729 laboratory-confirmed Covid-19 cases in Bonn, 805 people are in quarantine.

Approximately 25 percent of the current positive cases in Bonn are related to a family outbreak, and approximately four percent of all cases are related to travel in the past 21 days. 37.65 percent of the infections are vaccine breakthroughs, i.e. infections in persons who have already been vaccinated.
