Corona vaccinations have started in pharmacies in North Rhine-Westphalia.
Düsseldorf – Corona vaccinations in pharmacies have started in North Rhine-Westphalia. In Düsseldorf, a pharmacist vaccinated several people on Monday. The start took place in North Rhine-Westphalia one day before the deadline of February 8 announced nationwide. The family doctor associations in North Rhine-Westphalia had criticized the additional vaccination offer by pharmacists because there are currently free appointments in the practices and vaccination centers.
At the federal level, the way was paved in December for doctors, pharmacists, dentists and veterinarians to be allowed to vaccinate against corona for a limited period of time. Prerequisites are training and suitable premises or integration into mobile vaccination teams. The chairman of the North Rhine pharmacists’ association, Thomas Preis, reported that there was a surprisingly lively demand from those who wanted to be vaccinated at the start of the vaccination.
