Last day before the vaccination center in the exhibition halls of Hamburg | – Nachrichten – Hamburg

Status: 31-08-2021 17:53 hrs

After eight months of operation and more than a million corona vaccinations, the vaccination center in Hamburg will finally close its doors tonight at 8 p.m.

On the last day, Germany’s largest vaccination center was again very popular. In total, about 6,000 women and men were expected, most of whom would receive a second vaccination from Biontech. Spontaneous people could also receive a single vaccination with the active ingredient from Johnson & Johnson.

Good mood, but also sadness

The medical director of the vaccination center, Dirk Heinrich, reported that there was a good mood on the closing day. The colleagues took selfies, there was coffee and cake, some employees wore caps. However, there is also sadness among the employees, because in the eight months since the vaccination center opened in early January, a team has really grown together. The vaccination center had up to 4,400 employees, including more than 1,000 medical assistants and nearly 900 doctors.

Costs about 106 million euros

More than 1.16 million vaccinations have been administered in the exhibition halls in the past eight months, according to the social authorities. The costs, half of which are borne by the federal government and the other half by the city, are estimated to be around 106 million euros, according to information. The closure is going according to plan, according to the social service. The contract expires and another operation would no longer be profitable. “Everyone who wanted to be vaccinated there did so,” a spokeswoman said.

Extra information

Corona vaccinations take place in many facilities in Hamburg – without an appointment.

Vaccinations now at doctors, clinics or mobile vaccination teams

Mobile vaccination teams now have to visit people on the spot – in schools, mansions, parishes, mosques or even the football stadium. More than 1,100 general practices, ten hospitals and company doctors are also participating in the Hamburg vaccination campaign. With the mobile vaccination teams, citizens can choose whether they want the vaccine from Biontech – the mobile team returns about three weeks later for a second vaccination – or the active ingredient from Johnson & Johnson, which only needs to be vaccinated once.

There are special vaccination campaigns, for example on Fridays in Volksparkstadion or in the Elbphilharmonie.
