  • Long queues formed in front of the practice
  • The police and the public order office have to keep the situation under control

Before the start of the action on Saturday morning at 8 a.m., around 1,500 to 2,000 people had gathered on site and queued, said the mayor of the southern Hessian city, Dominik Stadler (independent), the German press agency. Some of the people had already arrived the day before and camped in front of the practice.

The mayor called for no longer arriving, as there are already significant traffic restrictions in the urban area and the designated parking spaces are full. The police and the public order office are on site to keep the traffic situation under control.

According to Stadler, around 90 people received their corona vaccinations every hour because a larger team carried out the vaccinations. In order to direct the influx, a parking lot has been specially equipped with a kind of obstacle course, said the mayor.

Harmonica player Norbert Herbert – artist name “Happy-Man” – also came to serenade those waiting to shorten the time. Some of them had brought folding chairs, stools and drinks with them. According to one observer, some people had to be treated with circulatory problems because of the warmth after being vaccinated.

Some of those who wanted to be vaccinated had even slept on the sidewalk in front of the practice.

According to Mayor Stadler, the family doctor announced about a week earlier that he had ordered 1000 vaccine doses and that they would be given to vaccinated persons on Saturday without prior registration.

The city authorities expressed concerns about the plans from the start, because there were fears that the free allocation of vaccinations could lead to a difficult and “uncontrollable” situation, said Stadler. The mood among those waiting was peaceful and relaxed, and everyone was sticking to the rules. Nevertheless, if the action is repeated, readjustments will be made. (dpa / mg)
