Germany will offer the COVID-19 vaccine to the entire adult population of the country, without prioritizing population groups, based on the June 7th, as announced this Monday by the Minister of Health, Jens Spahn.
The doses of the vaccine against COVID-19 in the European country were available although with restrictions of age, medical condition or profession.
However, Spahn has warned that the abolition of the prioritization does not mean that all citizens will be able to get an appointment to be vaccinated in a few days, before requesting “Patience” to the public.
On the other hand, the Government has warned that, despite the fact that COVID-19 cases continue to decrease, it is still too early to declare the battle against the coronavirus over and think about the summer holidays. “We have not yet reached the preconditions to enjoy a summer as relaxed as last year,” said German Government spokesman Steffen Seibert.
So far, Germany has administered more than 40 million doses of the vaccine. 37 percent of the country’s population has already received at least one dose, while 15 percent have the full regimen.
