Germany will make the corona vaccines available to all adult Germans from June 7, government sources say.
Health Minister Jens Spahn is said to have said that there is no need for priority anymore for vulnerable people.
“With this decision, all Germans from the age of sixteen can get vaccinated,” says documents inspected by the DPA news agency. This does not mean that all Germans who want an injection can be vaccinated in June.
“The vaccination campaign will last at least until the end of the summer,” said Spahn’s documents.
In the next three weeks up to June 7, another 15 million injections have to be taken. Those shots go to people Spahn previously said would get priority. This includes teachers, police officers, supermarket employees and public transport employees.
About 40 million vaccinations have been administered in Germany to date.
