Berlin – 90,000 vaccinations against the corona virus were administered in Germany on Sunday. This emerges from information from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) on Monday. According to the RKI, 73.4 percent of the population (61 million) now have complete basic protection. This usually requires two doses of vaccine. The RKI still counts people who have only received one dose of the Johnson & Johnson preparation – however, this is being changed: In future, Johnson & Johnson vaccinated people should only be given a second dose – if possible with an mRNA Vaccines like those from Biontech/Pfizer or Moderna – benefit from the 2G rules.

So far, according to the information, 75.5 percent of the population (62.8 million people) have received at least one vaccine dose against the corona virus. The federal government is aiming for 80 percent of those who have been vaccinated for the first time by the end of the month. According to the RKI, more than half of the population in Germany has received a booster vaccination. So far, 41.9 million people or 50.4 percent of the population would have received such a booster vaccination. This is important for effective protection against the particularly contagious virus variant Omicron.

According to the RKI, 24.5 percent of the population (20.4 million people) are currently not vaccinated. There is currently no approved vaccine available for four million of these people aged 0 to 4 years. When it comes to the rate of first and second vaccinations, Bremen is at the top of a federal state comparison. When it comes to booster vaccinations, Saarland is ahead of Schleswig-Holstein and Bremen. Saxony is at the bottom in each case. (dpa)
