AstraZeneca in Germany for everyone, no age limit. Any adult who requests it from their GP will soon be able to get the vaccine from the Anglo-Swedish company, regardless of which priority group they belong to. The new measure was announced today by the Minister of Health, Jens Spahn. The plan, which must still obtain final approval, aims to increase the number and pace of anti-Covid vaccinations. Spahn explained that the idea is to extend national initiatives already taken by health authorities in some regions and cities. For example, in Berlin, people over 60 can already have their GP vaccinations with AstraZeneca, while for those with Pfizer / BioNTech and Moderna they have to book through the city vaccination center. In Germany, 7.1 million people are currently fully vaccinated, or 8.6% of the population, while 30% have received at least one dose.
