The new vaccines have been available since mid -September. Recently there was also a vaccin adapted to the Omikron variant Ba.4/5. In total, more than 1,500 vaccinations have already been carried out with the new omicron vaccines. The interest increases.

The demand for vaccinations occurs compared to previous refresher campaigns between November 2021 and February 2022 at a low, but continuously increasing level. Around 5,500 vaccinations per week are currently administered - a doubling compared to the summer months.

Drese said: "The aim of the vaccination campaign in autumn and winter is primarily to avoid serious illness courses and thus also protect the health system and the critical infrastructure."

The quota of those vaccinated at least once is over 75 percent in MV. The value only changes slightly.

"It is correct that a comparatively good basic immunity has now been built up by the combination of vaccinations and infections within the population," said Drese. Not least thereby, the prerequisites compared to previous pandemic phases for the beginning of autumn and winter are significantly better. "However, vaccination or refreshing vaccination is still the most effective means for effective protection, especially against difficult courses."
