COVID-19: Government launches vaccination action week in Germany

You would like to be vaccinated but don’t know how to get a vaccination appointment in your federal state?

The German government is organising a nationwide, weeklong campaign from 13 to 19 September 2021 under the hashtag #HierWirdGeimpft to once again loudly promote vaccination.

On the website www.hierwirdgeimpft.de you will find all the important information sorted by federal state, ten good reasons to get vaccinated now and all the important documents you need for your vaccination appointment.

From 13 to 19 September, vaccination offers that are easy to take advantage of should be made in as many places as possible in Germany. In the sports club, in the supermarket or in advice centres: Everyone can join in and participate in the campaign.

Vaccination remains the most important tool in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, the federal government says. “It offers effective protection against infection with the coronavirus and especially against severe courses of the disease,” the government said in a press statement it issued at the launch of the #HierWirdGeimpft campaign.

“This is also shown by what is currently happening in hospitals and intensive care units.”

Full vaccination supports the immune system in fighting the pathogen and is the surest way to build up protection against the virus, doctors say. According to statistics from hospitals, 90 per cent of infected persons in Germany are those who have not been vaccinated.

Along with the AHA rules (keep your distance, observe hygiene rules, wear a mask in everyday life), vaccination is the most important building block for containing the Corona pandemic.
